A big crowd turned out for what could be the last Hot Rod Drags at Shakespeare County Raceway, and the weather got better as the weekend went on.

This year the Outlaw Anglia class celebrates 25 years, and there were over twenty cars entered for the event. Weather disrupted qualifying, so the ladder was done by championship points positions for a 16 car eliminator. Simon Barlow debuted a new engine combination for his Fordson with some test passes.
