Back in 2006, B.B. Brown approached Otto Timms, the owner of Paradise Drag Strip in Calhoun, Georgia about putting a nostalgia drag event together. The track opened in 1961, so it has tons of history in its roots, including high-level match races, and some of the fastest Super Stock racers in the Southeast. Paradise Drag Strip was originally a quarter mile track, but these days it's used only as an eighth mile for safety reasons, and the Show-N-Go event is held twice a year-one in the spring and one in the fall. With a car show, lots of heads up racing and an enormous swap meet, the Paradise Show-N-Go is a must-go event.
There are no particular classes for the racing portion of the show, giving it a laid-back feel with lots of action on the track. The Spring 2010 event was held on May 8th, and it was one of the biggest events yet. In fact, B.B. said they would've had trouble finding room for any more participants, so it may be time to devise a new plan for parking. With all the cool activities, mixed with a great track crew that truly enjoys watching these old machines do their thing, the Paradise Show-N-Go is sure to grow even more.
