Dover’s last day…

I remember my 4 year old son and I were sitting in the bleachers across from the timing tower watching time trials and I could not wait to introduce him to his first hamburger with raw onion from the snack bar. I believe an announcement was made before intermission that this may be the last day of racing at Dover.

When time trials were over the announcement came. Dover will close now and we will not be coming back after intermission, no more racing. I believe the announcement may have also mentioned something about no insurance for the remainder of the day forced the cancellation of racing.

A sad day, but somehow the memory is alive and that’s why we’re here.
