Mooneyes Christmas in July ~ Skywatch Friday

Back in December I brought you a Skywatch from the very soggy Mooneyes Christmas party at Irwindale raceway in So Cal.

The races were canceled ,the Kustom cars were wet and we were drenched by 3+ inches of rain that damp day …and we almost all stayed and turned it into a fun day anyway!

The awesome folks over at Mooneyes USA set up an unheard of make up show for July 18th , thus Christmas in July!

Again great car show and party plus the drag races went on all day long including a “cackle fest” of nostalgia dragstersĀ  at noon!

This is when they line up 6-12 drag cars on the track and just start them up and rev the motors all at once! The sound and smell of nitro fuel is eye stinging joy!

So no rain in sight , the temps reached a toasty 97 on the asphalt and close to 102 trackside , again we all stayed and had a great time!
