The Racers and Rodders Club Since 1952
The Road Kings of Burbank were established in 1952 and was initially a racing club with a few hot rods mixed in. Some or the early members had reputations for their drag racing exploits. In this web site you will be enjoying many of these exploits past and present.
Over time the club has become more hot rod than racer oriented, but they still hold a club drag racing series at LA County Raceway, in Palmdale , every year. It is very common for 20 to 30 cars to go for a long weekend to taste wine, enjoy dinner, and even display their cars at a car show.
The Club produces two charity car shows a year to benefit the high school auto shop programs, community-based help organizations and other recognized charities. Donations from the Road Kings events have topped $375,000 in the last decade alone.
In 1999 at the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion, The Road Kings were recognized as the Justice Brothers Spotlight Club. Other recognition has come from the Congress of the United States, Eagle1, City of Burbank and others for the charitable and civic exploits of the club. With over 100 members, the Road Kings continue the Racing and Rodding traditions of the past.
