Friday Night Drift Party and Hot Moves at Club Loose – Part One

Drift Cars and Good Times

 

The Weirdo of the Track was out again at Raceway Park Englishtown, New Jersey for Club Loose’ Friday Night Drift Party and Hot Moves weekend event.  It was held July 20th and 21st 2018.  For drivers, it was a weekend to turn plenty of laps in order to hone their skills.

For everyone else it was another time to work on their tan as they spectated the action or have a few drinks with friends old and new.

It was the kind of weekend that proved correct the Club Loose rule regarding the “W” word…you don’t talk about it.  The winds were whipping, the trees were swaying, but the tires shredded pavement all weekend long.


Have you ever planned-out a trip that you anticipated so much but suffered a few setbacks in the process of getting there?

Celebrating Independence with Cars and Carnivals

 “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

~United States Declaration of Independence

Cars and Carnivals

What does it mean to be free?  To some people today, it means to be able to say whatever they want, when they want.  To the Founding Fathers of the United States, being subjugated by despotic foreign governments was no idea of freedom.  Just like Americans today, 18th Century American leaders knew that being able to conduct their affairs freely was paramount in building a new society based upon free-trade and freedom of expression.

American carnivals like the Governor Mifflin Community Days celebration in Shillington, PA have come to embody what it means to be free.  To be able to enjoy your friends, family, and fresh air is what it’s all about.  Think about the last carnival you were at.  When you walked through the gate did you happen to take it all in?

Dureya Drive could be listed on the all-time list of best roads in the world.  As it twists up Mt. Penn in Reading, PA (pronounced RED-ING) you begin to think you’re in a green tunnel.

Open Pit Stalls

It’s multiple hair-pin corners dictate concentration like a nun with a yard-stick.  Get out of line with this road and you’ll eat the surfaced-rusted guard-rail that snakes along the tarmac.

 

The real challenge is the elevation changes.  In-fact, the name of the road is after an engineer from Canton, Illinois decided to use it to successfully a gasoline-powered engine up-hill.  In the 1950’s hot-rodders, thrill-seekers, and gear-heads started gathering to set the fastest-time up that same mountain.

Today, the Pagoda Hillclimb race draws people of a similar ilk to both Charles Dureya and those nut-job-racers decades ago.  At first-glance, you have to stop and ask yourself “are these people insane?”  It isn’t just due to the fact that the road is treacherous, it’s because many of the machines you’ll see carving through corners were hand-built by the nut behind the wheel.
