Just Some Good Ol' Boys Racing in Cleafield Pennsylvania

By the time you finish reading this story and seeing all the airtime, we're guessing you'll be humming the Dukes of Hazzard theme song. Clearfield is located in the heart of Pennsylvania over 100 miles from any major cities. So, what do you do for fun way out here? Hit the dirt of course! Borrowing Freedom Raceway is a private property corn and hay field that turns itself into a drag strip, obstacle course, ATV barrel race, and even a corn maze for the kids during parts of the year. We snapped more than 1,000 pictures of racing, breaking, smashing, and splashing, as well as some local flavor - which made it hard to choose the photos that went in this story. With that said, enjoy the shots! We hope one day to make it back out to PA for another event.

The drag race was separated into four classes: Street Stock, Stock, Renegade, and Open. Street Stock racer Jim (who was also the event DJ) raced his white Chevy against Tim Holt Jr. in his Ford F-150. Tim would end up taking home second place in his class.

Editor's Note We want to send a special thanks to Brian Stucke for showing us a really great time in Clearfield. We met some extremely nice people and got to experience what good ol' boy racing is all about. If you were competing in the event and we failed to include you in the article, we apologize. There was so much good action from the day it was hard to choose only a few images to use. If you would like to participate in some races at Borrowing Freedom Raceway, you can check it out at

Dawn Holt (aka Mom) and her black Suzuki Grand Vitara took on Brian Knepp and his "well used" Ford Explorer. The Ford didn't stand a chance. Who said they don't race Grand Vitara's off road?
