Rollin Thunder Racin

Welcome graphic

You have found the home of the Carolina Gassers. We are a group of Drag Racers committed to preserving the heritage of our roots. This group is made up of the Anglias, Willys, Henry Js, Fiats as well as the old Chevys, Fords and Dodges that frequented the drag strips of the late 60's and early 70's. Coming to see one of our shows is like taking a step back in time. A step back to before all the rules and regulations governed all the cars to look and run the same. When we pull the trigger on one of these unpredictable, often short wheel based, often ill handling creations, one thing is for sure - EXCITEMENT will ensue. Come see our show but be prepared to have the way you think about drag racing changed forever......
