Byron - Plote Invitational 2018
Sunday was the Plote Invitational 2018 annual drag racing day celebrating the 50 years of Beverly Materials. The racing was led by Dan and Dave Plote sharing their Dodge Demon SRT. To be honest I can't tell who was driving in the above photo due to the burnout smoke. I am guessing that there were around 50 cars broken down by class. This is a bracket style event with two rounds of time trials followed by the start of eliminations. Here is some of the action.
When in between rounds and not racing, there was plenty of conversation and just hanging out with each other.
The racers were all shooting for a little cash and one of these.
And the winners:
During the first round of Time Trials there was a special award of $100 for Ed Frost who cut a perfect light.
