      I am new to the site and gald its here !! just looked at “most” of the pics in the OFG and it feels like I just left Dover yesterday !!!!! What a GREAT feeling !!!! I went to Dover with my Father and Uncle back in the mid 60’s like everybody esle and raced there when I got my lic. till about 75 or 76 guess thats about when the gates closed …………. I live in stormville NY about 13 miles from where the track was ,started going to Lebanon Valley to race but go to Island DragWay in New Jersey instead now , its more like Dover to me !!! …. names Joe DiNardo but Tomatohead is what everybody calls me cuase we have a vegetable farm in Somers NY , its still there since 1955 , sure Wish Dover was still there …………………

              Stormville is where the airport is or was; that the late, great, “French Connection” aerobatic team called home. We drove through Stormville every Sunday on the way to Dover, and I was always excited to look at the aircraft. I saw the “French connection” do an airshow at this little backwater crop dusting field in Marlboro New York in the early ’70’s, and that very day took my first aerobatic flight at Kobelt Airport in a Stearman biplane.

                    Yes the airport is about a mile from my house and if I could win the $$$ lottery $$$ it would be turned into a Drag Strip overnight!!!! and would call it “Stormville Strip” !!! theres more then enough room and plenty of shut down ! do think the thought hasnt crossed my mine !! it does everytime I go over there to the flea market !! Mite not be a bad place to have a future Dover Drag Strip meet ……… just and Idea since there is so much room …………. ❓
