Remembering “Gene’s Hamburgers” at the Redding Drag Strip
There was a gathering of like-minded car enthusiasts last weekend, Feb. 11, 2018, on the grounds where the iconic Gene’s Hamburgers used to stand. With only the single “Gene’s Hamburgers” sign still standing, people gathered to remember the decades of good times had at this old-fashioned piece of Americana!
The gathering was in an effort to raise money to rehab the dying sign and get it moved over to a permanent spot at the Redding Drag Strip. We are happy to say that this fundraiser, initiated by Redding’s young drag racer Caleb Hurst, was a terrific success.Now the popular sign is a beacon of light in the dark as the drag strip roars to life in the evenings on the outskirts of town.
Gene’s… You will be missed by many! But your memory will live forward.
