Vintage Drag Racing Association

Welcome to our website ( incorporating "The Flatheaders of Denver" and "The Vintage Timing Association" into one progressive drag racing club for flathead and non-electronic pushrod Inline type engines.  We invite all makes and models of USA and Foreign engines within these two categories to join.

Our flathead and inline vehicles range from dragsters to sedans and we do not have a restriction on the type of car.  All race cars must pass a track technical inspection and be in conformance with NHRA ( rules for the times and speeds being run.

While its origins were with flathead and inline vehicles, the association now encourages participation in classes for overhead valve front engine dragsters (OHV/FED) and vintage style Gassers.

While our primary purpose is promoting nostalgic style drag racing in ET classes, our yearly High Altitude Flathead-Inline Nationals has a "heads-up" pro tree unlimited class for those who enjoy competing in the original drag racing concept.  Held at Bandimere Speedway  ( in Denver, Colorado, this national meet has been the largest Flathead-Inline drag race in the United States for over 20 years and now includes OHV/FED and Gasser classes.

At each meet we award points to all participating club members and usually vintage, restored trophies for 1st and 2nd place. Members collect nostalgic trophies, and a club member restores them. We are always looking for old racing trophies that could be donated to the club. If you have any old trophies that you don't know what to do with please contact the club president.

Monthly meetings are held the 1st Wednesday of every month in the 2nd floor conference room of PHIL LONG FORD OF DENVER, 7887 W. Tufts Ave., Denver, CO 80123. 7:00 p.m. to about 8:30 p.m.
