The NOPI Nationals was held again at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia, on September 21-22, 2013. I’ve been going since it was held at the Lakewood Fairgrounds, back in the early 1990’s, so, I obviously knew what to expect.
I woke up to drizzling rain, and with a weather forecast of rain all day, it looked bleak. I still headed up to the track.
When I got there around 11am, the rain was just holding off, so I started snapping away photos at some of the cars setting up for the show. I made it through the vendor midway, and got photos of some of the cars – and then it started raining. After a little while, it let up, and I started snapping photos again. At around 2pm, the skies started pouring rain, and it never let up. Racing was cancelled for the day, and most of the other events had to stop as well. The day was pretty much a wash out.
Since I was snapping a lot of photos this weekend, the photos are more snapshots, and the quality of them is lower, in the effort to get more coverage. Below are the photos that I snapped from Saturday – I will be posting up Sunday coverage a little later, and will break out the drift and drag photos into their own separate posts.
