Cordova International Raceway
By Nostalgia Drag World
Nostalgia Drag World was on hand to check out the last of the River Redemption series of races held at Cordova International Raceway. This was race # 6 and boasted a $10 thousand dollar payout.
We must give Dom Blasco and his entire team huge kudos as we have watched this series grow steadily since its inception. In today’s world of declining car counts and dwindling fan bases it is really refreshing to see a new series catching traction.
Al Tucci brought his world famous color commentary to Cordova International Raceway. This guy is worth the price of admission alone. The excitement he creates is real. You will have to travel a long way to find someone who is more passionate about drag racing than this man.
Most of the competitors that participate in the River Redemption races use late model iron with power adders like turbos, nitrous and super chargers. As our name implies we are geared more towards old school races. We have however taken notice that a lot of the nostalgia race groups are showing up to these events to take advantage of the extremely well prepared racing surfaces. This was the case as the Midwest Nostalgia Pro Stock Association showed up with 8 cars to make one last Midwest event before the snow flies we shot a few pictures hope you enjoy them.

Glad to see you back, buddy.
