H.A.M.B. is an online community supporting traditional hot rodding. Each year they sponsor the H.A.M.B. Drags at the MoKan Raceway outside of Pittsburg KS. This site is selected because it is thought to be the most authentic and true representation of the original drag raceway. While racing is important to the entrants, it is really about getting together with old friends and having a great time. Cars run against the clock rather than other cars.
This was a fun trip for Tom. He got to meet up with lots of old friends, hang around old cars and visit with his sister, Mary. He also did a custom photo shoot of a recently restored historic '41 Barris Mercury. The historic value of this particular car almost insures an invitation to show at Pebble Beach in the future.
OK, I just know someone is going to ask about H.A.M.B. It stand for Hokey Ass Message Board. It was started in about 1995 by Ryan Cochran. A college student, Ryan wanted to build a hot rod but did not know how. So he created this message board to get help and share with others who also wanted help. It now has over 600,000 members world-wide!!
