Our Hot Rod on Display ~ Crew Dude Position for Auction??
May 04, 2013
Silverton Christian School was the venue for the Gregg Racing Team to give back to our community as the Team worked VERY hard for a couple weeks prior to this charity event to get our Hot Rod all dressed up and ready to go. This Auction, held at the Silverton Christian School, a Preschool through 8th Grade Christian School in Silverton, is an annual Fund Raiser for the School and is VERY popular in the community. Most Auction items are a bit more “traditional”- i.e.~ a load of Bark, 1000’ square feet of turf, an Elk Hunting trip in Eastern Oregon, various Lawn and Garden equipment donated by many great local merchants who all support the School- Our entry certainly “Stood Out” as we had our A/Fuel Dragster prominently parked right out front, all 32’ of her Loud and Proud and on Display for the attendees to see what they were bidding on- and, in fact, to that end, allow me to share what that was! Here’s a copy of what the attendees saw on the handout that they all received, prepared just for them, describing the rather unique Auction item of- “Being a Crew Dude on an A/Fuel Dragster Team for a Race Weekend”.

There’s a Hellova’ “Back Story” that will follow soon, as Gregg will be sharing the details of how our New Car actually came to be! Please allow me to ‘whet your appetite a bit here- Our story will begin with a trip to the 2011 IMIS show in Indy that Gregg and Jerry Darien attended after researching options to actually BUILD twin cars. By the time we’re done with our story, we’ll be speaking of Bob Vandergriff and his Crew Chief Rob Flynn, along with Robert Hight (and the John Force Racing Organization), and then we’ll conclude our journey, (‘er…..That’d be the 11 month saga we’re speaking of here, NOT the band from the 80’s! Lol!!!) with none other than Joey Severance!! We now have our new Chassis, and it is a virtual “Twin” to one that Jerry Darien has! More about that to follow also! Please stay tuned & we’ll fill you in on this IMPROBABLE story!! Relationships MATTER, in WHATEVER you’re doing – This is CERTAINLY true in Drag Racing!!
Gregg Racing ~
Good friends & Good Times at 265 MPH!!
