RPM Nationals

There was deinitely much more patina than shine at this event!

Road trip to the

The RPM Nationals is a throwback to the early days of drag racing. Back when street cars and race cars competed head-to-head to see whose garage had built the faster car. The racers went down the 1/8 mile, two at a time, with the drop of the lag. At the RPM Nationals, things haven’t changed much from the early days -- apart from the age of the drivers.

The event takes place at the beautiful Santa Margarita Ranch just a bit northeast of San Luis Obispo. There are three diferent racing brackets competing head-to-head. One class for lathead V8’s, one for the 4-Bangers and another for full-race. All of the classes are restricted to running periodcorrect speed equipment. There was deinitely much more patina than shine at this event!
