14th Annual Holley National Hot Rod Reunion Presented by AAA Insurance

Thursday - Saturday
Beech Bend Raceway, Bowling Green, Ky.
 
2016 Grand Marshal, Bill Bader Sr. 

In 1974 oval track promoter Bill Bader, Sr. with no drag racing experience, bought Norwalk Dragway located between Cleveland and Toledo. After a rocky start he turned the track into one of the sport’s finest facilities. Bader’s “satisfaction quotient” includes providing a super experience to all guests including racers, fans, and sponsors. .John Force said, “The Baders have as much passion for the sport as I do”, and after match racing for years at Norwalk’s “Night of Fire” honored Bader in 2005 with his portrait on the hood of his Funny Car. In 1998 Bill, Jr. took over and continued the operation as before. In 2007 the track was renamed Summit Motorsports Park and switched from IHRA to NHRA sanction where it has become the home of the June Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals. Although Bader, Sr. no longer has a hand in day to day operations he is quick to credit the hard work and support of family and friends as the ingredients that made it all work.
