    Hung out at Briarwoods in Bridgeport,Connecticut.Everybody who raced went there.We all raced at Dover Dragstrip,Connecticut Dragway,National Speedway,Suffolk County Long Island,Lebanon Valley,Milton Speedway in Vermont,New England Dragway in Epping New Hampshire,York Pennsylvania.After we raced where ever it was we would all go to the hang out to race talk about our day,maybe a few street races.Met alot of car guys there then and still friends with them from 1968.Not far from Cooper’s Auto parts on East main Street Bridgeport.We all bought our racing needs from Cooper’s and from Deb’s in Milford,Connecticut.Also a few times made it out to Greenwich,CT to see Dick Moroso on East putnam Ave.It was a great time to live in,met alot of good people.I also re-met the girl I married there on a Sunday afternoon on a week end that I was waiting for parts for my Fire Bird named Break Away.If I was racing that week end I probably would not have met my wife.Back then ther wasn’t alot of time to spend on girl friends because the race car was so demanding.
