TROG Presents: Santa Barbara Drags

March 8th and 9th 2019

It is our great pleasure to bring you... the Santa Barbara DRAGS!!! 

A true homage to automobile and motorcycle history, a race like no other!!!
Spectators and racers alike will experience a simpler time of when guys were gentlemen and cars were king! TROG will exhibit their hand-selected group of gentlemen and gentlewoman, who will showcase their pre and early post-war machines “street racing” with the beautiful backdrop of the Santa Barbara beaches and shoreline. An extraordinary display of why America's love for vintage racing will never fade! To expand our love of  vintage racing we are leaving the beach (only a few feet) to pay tribute to another part of our history, early “street racing”... Before we moved to drag strips, the kids tested their home built machines on the streets. Often looked at as a menace to society, car clubs were formed, and drag strips were built across the nation for our safety. Now thanks to the City of Santa Barbara... we are back in the streets, running... running!!! Good peoples, get your engines ready for... the Santa Barbara DRAGS!!!
