The Planning 'Has" begun

. . . .just talked to Wayne (Lebanon Valley manager)...We are GO for liftoff!...for third week again of Sept. 2017. Possable Bracket finals at Numundia the same weekend will have little or no effect on us. So I'll be alerting other Tracks as soon as exact dates are confirmed, revolving around NHRA Div. 1 final schedule. Also talked directly with Larry Fischer of NHRA Museum. He is quoted as stating " There is NO budget for a third Hot Rod Reunion date in 2017 (.... Meaning NO Epping,only Bowling Green & California)........reporting live at Dover Drags event headquarters in wonderful downtown Rockingham.

The September date sure worked out good this year and hope for the same next year. We just need more time for the Dover functions, when the time gets cut due to unexpected things like oil downs or breakage it seems the Dover stuff should stay at the Dover race. Glad the scheduling is not up to me for this kind of thing, just my thoughts.
