This past weekend (April 26, 2014) was the 3rd Annual Throttle Jockey Car Show & Drags in Herington, KS. I’ve known a few members of the Throttle Jockey club for awhile and I’ve been bummed to have missed the first two shows due to a busy schedule. Herington has the perfect business district for a car show, the main highway was moved out of the city decades ago so there was no issue with the city blocking off the main drag for the show. Registration was 8-10 and the show went to 12 then the crowd moved to the Herington Regional Airport, an old WWII airfield east of Herington out in the sticks.
One of the runways of the old airfield has been converted to an 1/8th mile drag strip. The city of Herington has a big history with railroads and that’s evident with the railroad tie barriers that were separating the track from the crowds. That was some serious protection! The pics of the drags will come but we’ll start with the shots of the show.
See you at a show,
