(Photo by Wes Allison) The Nitro Revival in Irwindale is what has been described as a museum of the golden age of drag racing coming to life, and with all these cool cars on site there is no doubt that it is all of these. and much more. We’re talking about Fuel Altereds, front-engined nitro-burning dragster, Gasser, Funny Cars and so much more. But it’s not just about the cars, it’s also about the people who drove, tuned and built them. The number of iconic cars only pales from the number of iconic people who were on site talking to fans and telling stories from the good old days. This event is fantastic, plain and simple and Steve Gibbs really hit a home run when he decided to put the whole event together.
“Nitro Revival brings back the sights and sounds of the early days of hot rodding,” said Gibbs, “and allows fans to experience a drag racing museum that comes to life, not just through the vehicles themselves, but through the presence of many of those who built, maintained and drove those cars on tracks like the original Irwindale Raceway and two San Gabriel Drag Strips. “
For some, the assembly of nitro-powered race cars, such as “Pure Hell”, the name of the legendary altered fuel owned by Rich Guasco, the Fitzgerald family’s “Pure Heaven”, Ron Hope’s “Rat Trap” and Fiat’s Randy Bradfords, will rekindle an image of the golden age of drag racing. Add the Hough family’s “Nanook,” the “Winged Express” made famous by the late Willie Borsch and Troy Glenn’s voice “Over the Hill Gang,” and you might think you’re back in the 1960s. “
