Flashlight Drags, Ebensburg Airport

Quickly becoming one of the premier summer events in Cambria County is the flashlight drags held at the Ebensburg Municipal Airport in Cambria County, Pennsylvania. Racers from several counties in the Southcentral Pennsylvania area converge on the airport to enjoy a Sunday afternoon of grass roots drag racing. It's a "run what you brung" event with completely street legal cars. For more information, complete rules and regulations visit the flashlight drag website at http://www.flashlightdrags.com/ Shown here are only a few of the pictures that I shot during the event. Not all pictures have captions. They are more or less self-explanatory.

I love your pics from around the Ebensburg area, keep up the great work. P.s. It's a Firebird not a Camaro.
