Twilight Tech Talk 1: Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow

Gale Banks has partnered with The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum to offer Tech Talks in conjunction with the Twilight Cruise Nights car show. The Tech Talks are a series of monthly educational automotive seminars with industry leaders. The first topic is “Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow–How Does an Engine Really Work,” about the basics of four-cycle engine operation (and knowing Gale it will go way beyond the basics). Tech Talks are free and open to all Cruise Night guests. Tech Talks are held at 6:00 pm in the Gale Banks Automotive Technology Exhibit inside the museum.

In addition to Gale’s seminar inside the museum, join us outside in the museum parking lot from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm for hot rodding fun for the entire family. Festivities include music, food and beer vendors, raffle prizes and more. Participate in the Grand Prize Drawing featuring a California Hot Rod Reunion Weekend Getaway Package, an Auto Club NHRA Finals Weekend Package, and a Smith-Miller Union 76/Mobil Gasoline Tanker Collector Truck. All proceeds benefit the museum.

While at the Fairplex, be sure to see the Gale Banks Automotive Technology Exhibit inside the museum and discover over 50 years of Banks’ history, including world record-setting engines, cars, and trucks. Admission into the museum is free after 3 p.m.

The museum is located at the Fairplex in Pomona, 1101 W. McKinley Ave., Bldg. 3A, Pomona, Calif. 91768. Enter at Gate #2 (just west of the Sheraton Hotel). For more information, call 909/622-2133 or visit
