Gear Jam

 The Gear Jam vintage drags, traditional hot rod & custom show and swap meet.

 Here's an event you don't want to miss. On Saturday, May 11, 2013 at The Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia (Just a few hours from everywhere in the South, a day's drive from anywhere East of the Mississippi!).

Cruisin’ Commerce cruise-in and block party Friday Night, May 10 from 6-10pm. Food, beverages, live bands, and VIP parking participating cars.

For drag racers, current classes include: Gasser, Front Engine Dragster, Altered/Comp Coupe, Nostalgia Super Stock, Hot Rod, Muscle Car. All classes are “period” oriented, with rules designed to give the event a look and feel of the ‘60s.

There's also the traditional hot-rod and custom car show. In conjunction with the NE Georgia Swap Meet, with nearly 200 vendors (VENDORS, not “vendor spaces sold.”)

Qualifying begins in the morning:
Heads-up Quick 8 eliminations for purse money in all classes in the afternoon and evening.

All other racers get paired with the car closest to their ET for a heads-up best 2-out-of-3 shootout through Eliminations. This way everyone gets to play and make passes all day; nobody goes on the trailer early; nobody gets their doors blown off; and the fans get to watch good, close Heads-up racing rather than staggered starting brackets.

Final race is a Quick 8 elimination with the class winners and two fastest qualifiers for “Mr. Top Eliminator.”

Burnout contest sponsored by Hot Rod Deluxe Magazine.
Back-Up Girl Contest.
