The day the music died ( ENGINE SOUNDS ), 39 years ago today.
I remember talking to someone the week after it closed and he said, did you hear that Dover closed and I said yes I was there and it was one of the saddest days I can remember. We were all hopping this was just a reorganize move and that someone would reopen it again soon.
As I said before I went there on July 4 1976 and the gate was open ( wish I had a camera ) it was like nothing I though would ever happen to Dover. I went up to the tower and everything was just like I remember with all the electronics just waiting for Dino to pick up the mike and announce Super Stock lane 1, A Stock lane 2.BCDEF in lanes 3-4-5-6-7. On that it would have been tough because there were dirt piles across the track half way down. I still have my original Dover car. MEMORY’S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
