A nice weekend at the drag strip|
This is only Rally at Strip's second year, located out in the beautifull hills of north-eastern Tennessee.
The party's centered around the English Mountian drag strip and they run bikes all weekend long. Unlike highly organised (and expensive) top fuel races this one's just for fun. Just sign a waiver and run your bike down the track. Race your buddies, race your girlfriend or show up the fat dude on a road king... it's all in good fun.
They've got a little stage set up on side of the strip with some kickin bands lined up for the weekend. Geneva, Big Engine and Stone Sunshine put on great shows, and they had a battle of the bands Thursday and Friday night with the band Saturday Night Special taking the honors.
The set up is kind of strange with a drive through biker bar way out at the end of the drag strip where the party moves after dark. If I were these guys I would forget about the bar at the top of the hill and move the party down to the stage... and of course throw in a wet tee shirt contest or two every night. But hey, that's just my two cents worth.
It wasn't a bad show at all, I had a good time just hanging out. The bands were really good and watching amateurs run the bikes they rode in on down the track is always fun.
Bob rates this party 5/10
