The Race of Gentlemen founders hosted a vintage drag race and car show at the Hilton resort in Santa Barbara last weekend. Their events are always entertaining and we were glad to be able to spectate along with a few thousand other people on Saturday in support of the Santa Barbara Drags.
TROG's team had a stretch of road in front of the resort closed off for 1/8 mile drag racing. People filled the green lawn along the street and enjoyed side by side motorcycle and hot rod racing all day long. The event also featured the Customs by the Sea car show, plus plenty of other attendees brought out their classics on race day to show off. In the parking lot, the "pits" were filled with cool cars and people all day long as drivers made repairs and relaxed in between runs down the 1/8 dragstrip.
The weather was great and I think everyone really enjoyed the show that TROG put on. We will see what they have in store for later in 2019 and beyond for events in Southern California.
Here are some of our favorite photos from Saturday. We will post more photos to Instagram this week, plus a short video.
