    I NEVER GOT TO RACE AT DOVER . I WAS A YOUNG DRAG RACE FAN BACK IN THE LATE 60S AND 70S BEFORE I EVER WENT DOWN THE TRACK MYSELF . HERES MY MEMORYS OF SOME OF THE STAMFORD CT CARS THAT RACED THERE WHEN I WAS A KID . YOU KNOW BEFORE 16 YEARS OF AGE L.O.L. ALVIN MCKEITHENS SR. MR CHIPMONK CHEVY WAGON / THE TRENEZIO BROS GENE VICTOR AND ANTHONY KICK ASS ALTERED THE ITALIAN WAY / LET IT FLY RIGHT ? AND THEN THERE FUNNY CAR THE ITALIAN STALLION .THE BEE LINE AUTOMOTIVE WILLYS . OUR OLD NEIGHBOR FROM STAMFORD THAT ME AND BOTH MY BROTHER DELIEVERED PAPERS ON OUR ROUTE ON SEASIDE AVE TO BIG KEVIN DUNN AND HIS WILLYS DRAGIN WAGON . OLD HARLEY DAVIDSON TRIUMPH B.S.A. AND NORTON DRAG BIKE RACERS R.B. ROBERT BLACKSON / BONES OFIERO / VITO SABATO / DOMINIC MICELI / RON RICH SR. / JOHN “MORTY” MOULD / JACKIE HIENLICKY / BIG GEORGE SANDOR / BUTCH HOOPER / LOUIE MECILI /GLEN JOHNSON / BOB WOODS / JOE HEVELKA / ETC ETC ETC . I HAVE ATTENDED THE DOVER REUNIONS AT MARCUS SINCE THE LATE 90S EARLY 2000 TO PRESENT AND LOVE TO COME BACK EVERY YEAR AND SEE THE OLD CARS ARE BEING PUT BACK TOGETHER AND THE ORIGINAL SURVIVORS THAT THANK GOD NEVER GOT CHOPPED UP OR SCRAPPED. MY NAME IS CHRIS RASILE AND I AM FROM STAMFORD CT. MOST PEOPLE AROUND HERE AND AT THE MARCUS DIARY CRUISES KNOW ME AS CHRIS FROM ” FAST LANE ” CYCLES OR NOW FAST LANE ENTERPRISES . I DID GET TO GO DOWN THE DRAG STRIP FINALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME AROUND 1984 WITH VITO SABATO AND GOT INTO DRAG RACING HARLEY SPORTSTERS. SINCE THEN I HAVE ESTABLISHED A TOTAL OF 55 E.T. AND M.P.H. RECORDS AND WON A TOTAL OF 4 # 1 PLATES INCLUDING 15 TOP TENS TO DATE . GUESS YOU COULD SAY I GOT HOOKED REAL FAST ON SPEED ON THOSE MIGHTY TWO WHEELED DEMONS . MY QUICKEST AND FASTEST TIME TO DATE HAS BEEN A 8.80 AT 148.85 MPH ON MY PRO MODIFIED HARLEY SPORTSTER THIS WAS ON V.P. RACING GAS ONLY TOO I MIGHT ADD . . I RACE MY OLDER 1976 NOSTALGIA HARLEY PRO STOCK TYPE MACHINE FROM TIME TO TIME . I WON THE FIRST 2005 N.E.T.O. NOSTALGIA M/C ELIMINATOR CHAMPIONSHIP . AND HAD ALSO FOUND AND RESTORED BACK OVER THE WINTER OF 2000/ 2001 THE FIRST OFFICIAL 9 SECOND PRO STOCK HARLEY SPORTSTER FROM 1975 THATS STILL IN MY POSSESSION ALSO IN RACE READY CONDITION . BUT AFTER TWO WHEELING FOR ALMOST 45 YEARS I DID GET MY FIRST AND SECOND REAL HOT RODS THAT ARE MOSTLY STREET RIDES A 67 MALIBU CLONE 396 WITH A BIG BLOCK 4 SPEED PUT 15K MILES ON IT BETWEEN 2000 AND 2004 THEN GOT A BAD ASS. CAN I SAY THAT ? REAL 138 CODE 1968 SS 396 CHEVELLE WITH A TALL DECK TRUCK BLOCK 427 ENGINE BORED AND STROKED TO 468 WITH BIG N.O.S. BOTTLE APPROX 700 H.P.
