Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the 2006 NHRA Auto Club Finals.
November 11 - 12, 2006: The Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona was the last big drag meet of the year. The event also featured seven hours of jamming Uncle Joe Meet & Greet sessions Saturday and Sunday mornings, and Unc gave away another Harley Davidson Sunday afternoon (he's truly a giver!). 2004 NHRA Division 7 Super Gas Champ Randy Balough once again raced the Uncle Joe's Racing Super Gas Corvette through three rounds of competition, boding well for next season. That's rock & roll!

Right where we belong —
in the middle of the whole show!
Meeting folks and telling stories.
Lined up and ready to race!
Sunday morning's NHRA Museum Hot Rod parade
is always a highlight.
The KLOS/Subway Harley giveway contestants gather,
Unc prays for the bike, then Ernest Hollins wins and
poses with 3-time NHRA Champ Andrew Hines.
The Reverend RanDog performs another miracle.
