This view shows just one of the two large halls that Darwin Doll and his crew fill full of muscle cars every year one July weekend on the York County Fairgrounds in York, Pa.

The legendary York US30 Drag-O-Way has been gone for over 30 years, having last felt slick-sidewall rubber grappling for traction on the former Jackson Township airport west of York Pennsylvania in 1979. NHRA’s former Division 1 Director Darwin Doll, who worked at the track itself from 1959-1961, has hosted the York US30 Reunion and Musclecar Madness event for the last 10 years in its memory. As always, the two-day show brings a lot of neat stuff out of the woodwork, and the 2011 version was no exception. As we went to press, Doll told us he has a potential sponsor lined up to help out next year, when the show will occur on July 13-15 (the final day being the Nostalgia Nationals at Beaver Springs covered in Drag Racing Online last week). Incidentally, this date also moves the event off of the same weekend at the Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals, freeing up some vendors and owners from that responsibility. We say – BE THERE!...

The 409 era began with the 1961 Chevy and a 360-hp package, one of which was raced by York local Dave Strickler with help from a young Cornell engineering graduate named Bill Jenkins. Ronnie Evans of Gilbertsville, Pa., unveiled a tribute to long missing car.
