      That would make a great headline in the Poughkeepsie Journal…. Found an old
      Rhiengold bottle and can on one of my trips. Wasn’t really looking for trophys,but
      Fred Murphy gave this old 1968 Dover class winner that was won by Ron Frost. The
      “Night Light” trophy was just an unexpected ebay find. I guess you can just never have too much stuff….

          Before this gets out of hand ….lets confirm with a photo… if its true , Lets Ask permission this time ? Maso might be right………………………..”OBSESSED FORMER DRAG RACERS ARRESTED IN THEFT AND TRESSPASSING AT OLD TRACK SITE”

          Huh…?!

          And how is asking a property owner if you can have a 28 year old pole mounted speaker that’s probably rusty and couldn’t possibly work anymore if you can have that for a keepsake because back in it’s day YOU were the track announcer there… how can that possibly be construed as…”Theft”…???

          Just tell him who you are and that it would mean a lot to you if you could have that… he’ll understand.

          Somebody up that way… get us a picture of that speaker with your zoom lense and post it here. Let’s see what we’re talking about.

          I gotta’ think that that speaker would be a super cool thing for Dino to have and save for posterity.

          The origional… “Attention in the pits… and other parts of your body…!” speaker…:lol:

                  Pole IS there …called Brian to confirm.(this was driving me bananas) But ..he’s actually confirmed from triangulating three photos with background referance …That it is the pole that was up the slight bank to the street side of staging lane 1 .That is if you faced forward at the front of staging lane 1 with the tower to your right, the pole was to your left. For some reason when they excavated,l owering the entire area…they left that pole intact…and what you see around it’s base is old land ,at old hieght. NOW …if anybody read the whole POLE/Speaker story and didn’t know us…theyd’e think we’re a little COMPULSIVLY NUTS…………………and the’re right…SO go get the Damn thing if it’s there ….OH Bob ….about your 59 year old “Hard” drive…is it still 😆 .?

                      Video Bob is right, plenty of poles scattered around, but I didn’t see
                      any speakers! The close up shows speaker???? brackets,but it doesn’t look like
                      anythings been attached for a long time…
