      I seem to remember racing on a Sunday and they had some local law about sound. Wasn’t there like an hour when you could not run on the track or in the pits??

                    Sams place about 1 mile east of the strip, near the RR tracks is open again after 20+ years closed. Or at least it was open in 2006 when I was there. The amazing thing was — everything was exactly the same!! The bar, furniture, jukebox, & floor were unchanged from 40 years ago!! The same 60’s songs were on the jukebox, it was a “Time Warp” for sure! Maybe I was dreaming, so someone should go and take a Sunday ride in the country & verify!!
                    When ever I won Middle Eliminator I would go there and give the check (usually a$100) to Sam and tell him to let me know when it ran out, he never did! Alot of guys drank on those checks and that was a lot of Sundays. Probably was the best time of the day, other than beating DeSantis in his Ford powered Coupe.

                            It’s going to feel strange walking in there the last time was the day dover closed.

                              Upstairs Bob here. Gene passed away, but Elaine Ford is still kicking and still owns the building. Don’t be surprised if she shows up on Jan. 10th. I ran into Brian the other day at Jayce’s. I told him Elaine has the original benches from Ol’ Sams that were in the dining area and is willing to donate them to the museum, I showed them to Brian.
