It was looking like rain last night. While I was
watching the sky for any sign of moisture it just
suddenly went cloudless. That reminded me it was
cruising season and I haven’t listed many events
yet. Since tomorrow is the first day of May we
should get started.
Friday, May 1, there will be the car show at Dick-
N-Sons Lumber & Flower Shop in Blue Grass, Iowa. If
I remember correctly things get going around 6 pm
and it is a good little show.
Also Friday is the 3rd Magic Dragon Steet Meet
Nationals held at Bagell Dam Strip in Lake of the
This Friday and Saturday is Vintage Torquefest
2015 at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds in Dubuque,
Iowa. Fun show with traditional rods and customs,
bobbers, pin-ups, and a lot of rockabilly music.
Also Friday and Saturday, is the Spring 2015 Auto
Parts Swap Meet at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in
Des Moines, Iowa.
If you’d rather be racing, Cordova International

Friday, May 1 is Fun Night and gates open at 5 pm.
Saturday, May 2 is Spring Fun Day with open racing
for all and gates open at 10 am.
Sunday, May 3 is Battle of the High Schools
presented by KISS-FM and gates open at 10 am.
Sunday, May 3 is the J.C. Whitney Car Show at 761
Progress Parkway in LaSalle, Illinois. Show hours
are 9 am to 4 pm, the show is free, and 3D Sound

And those are just of few events that are going on
this weekend. We’re still checking our schedule to
see if we can make at least one of these events.
Enjoy the weekend, should be great weather for it
