Steel Valley Super Nationals underway in Salem

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, Ohio -
It's a weekend that hot rod buffs look forward to all year - The Steel Valley Super Nationals.

It's a chance for motor heads to show off their passion for cars at Quaker City Raceway.

You don't have to know all the lingo to have fun watching hot rods and motorcycles reach speeds of over a hundred miles per hour in a safe environment.

"We get to hang out and watch the cars race and friends and it's an awesome time," said Jennifer Allen of Champion.

Gregory Rubenstahl came all the way from Fayetteville, North Carolina to show off his brand new truck, camouflaged with a 1951 Chevy body. 

"It's got a V-6, automatic. Power steering, power brakes, electric seats, gets 22 miles a gallon in it," he said.

On the first day of racing Friday, rain was the only element that occasionally put the brakes on the action.

"You can't have any water on the track at all. As much horsepower as these cars are pushing off the line, it only takes a split second to hit the wall," said Richard Yarwood of New Waterford.

During those breaks, patrons can step away and enjoy all of the vendors that are available at what has become a more family-oriented event.
