    I don't know how many slanters are on this site, but here is a repost from slantsix.org

    The Clay City race for 2018 is going to be the largest gathering of Slant 6 racers ever assembled! We are reaching out to every current and former Slant 6 drag racer along with anyone else that has an interest in the Slant 6 engine to join us for this historical event.

    You don’t have to be a racer or even own a vehicle to come and hang out with us! If you are reading this post, that qualifies you as a “Slant 6 Enthusiast”! So come to Clay City, KY the weekend of 7-9 September 2018 to see the best Slant 6 drag racing on earth and hang out with some of the most welcoming and down to earth people you could ever meet. The Slanted Family wants to see you there.

    2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the “Biggest Slant 6 Event Ever” back in 1998 when this racing series began, so we are going to have a “Racer’s Reunion” along with the racing action.
