CORDOVA, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) New Years Day
hangovers are a drag but in Cordova, Illinois, theyre a
real drag race.
Thats because the town is home to an annual event
called Hangoverfest, where locals spend the morning
of January 1 recovering from the previous nights
festivities by racing each other around Cordova Dragway Park.
The events spokesman who calls himself
Tazz says the frozen hot rod festival is a way
for local racers to satisfy their need for speed until April, the
official start of the season.
But speed is relative here. Tazz says snowy conditions mean
the drivers will probably only go around 80 mph, much less than
the regular season average of 132 mph.
Tazz figures some racers might still be nursing hangovers
when the race begins but promises those who are still
reeking wont be allowed to go behind the wheel.
However, they will be allowed to enjoy the dollar Bloody
Marys available to non-racers who are over 21, and the
complimentary aspirin handed out at the doors.
New Years Hangovers Are A Real Drag Race
