The Tri-Five Nationals will be held at the historic Beech Bend Raceway in August, aiming to be among the largest events ever for 1955, ’56 and ’57 Chevrolets, according to a press release. It’s being organized by the crew at Woody’s Hot Rodz in Bright, Indiana.
“These cars have always been our passion, and since our entire business is now focused on remanufacturing all-new ’55-’57 Chevys, the time seemed right for a national event focused on Tri-Five Chevys”, said Chris Sondles, owner of Woody’s Hot Rodz.
The Holley Tri-Five Drags will be a major part of this celebration and will feature three heads-up racing classes and two bracket classes just for ’55-’57 Chevys. Classes for DOT Stock, Junior Stock and Nostalgia/Gasser will be heads-up, while Junior Eliminator and Top Eliminator will be bracket classes, according to the release. All racing will be quarter-mile.
“We’re excited that yet another national event is coming to our hometown of Bowling Green and we’re excited to be able to sponsor the drag racing portion of the Tri-Five Nationals. Holley carbs have powered more drag race winners than all others combined and we enjoy it when our Holley team members can see the parts they make in action”, said Bill Tichenor, Holley’s director of marketing.
