      Hi Dino,
      Paul Ceasrine here

      I just joined the site. Great job on the site with great people. Dover was just not a good track, but loaded with good people. My family spent many Sundays at the track.
      A little family history. My father, Vincent Ceasrine ran our family 67′ Barracuda Fastback
      at the track. Starting out in 68′ in J/S, then into K/S (he painted the car black and lettered it “The Shadow”). In 72′ he went into L/S, then switched to a 340 engine and went into
      SS/I for 73′, with a green paint job.
      When my father got to the line, you always used to crack us up when you would say,
      “Who knows? The Shadow Do”, in a deep voice.
      Anyway, he just ran for trophies, which we always felt was much more fun than
      $ Eliminator.
      We lived in Mahopac, but my father had an American Service Station off Fowler Road
      and Route 301 in Carmel, from 68′ thru 70′. The place was always loaded with local guys who ran at Dover. Lou Vignogna, Andy Kinash, Bob Schliegel, Frank Etrie and too many to
      I have several photo’s of Drag cars at Dover, which I can copy and forward to you.

                Joe Beltempo, I’ve talked to him a couple of times on the phone. I guess I need to talk to his wife to get him set up and logged in here.

                  Hey Storm King,

                  It’s Sunday, what are doing home on the computer. Your supposed to be heading into
                  Dover this morning, off Pleasant Ridge Road. Weren’t we supposed to meet at Adam’s
                  Diner at the intersection of 22 and Pleasant Ridge. Well I’m still waiting here.
                  I asked the girl at the counter for a wedge, and she put a 64′ Dodge 426 Stage III in between the two pieces of bread.
                  Yes we knew the Centalanzo’s, but didn’t hang with them. My father bought his first pair of
                  slicks from them. Traveled to Highland Garage in 1968, when I was only 11. I saw the car in the back of the garage, the white RO Hemi, and I was hooked.
                  I put a question on the forum, about the “Black Arrow”. You are probably the most qualified to answer.
                  According to the 1965 Super Stock Plymouth’s factory owners list, Bill Jenkins of
                  Berwyn, Pa is listed as the owner or list register of the #12 car.
                  Also, Jim Campisano, author of American Muscle Car (Page 22), states that Jenkins got a
                  “Ride of his own” from Chrysler with a 1965 Plymouth Super Stocker, to be called
                  the “Black Arrow”. It did not state that Chrysler gave him a car, only that he got his own ride.

                  Whats’ up?
