    Pete …you’re my hero…Ah…obviously if thats an original…”somebody” changed suppliers ,cause that is way differant than previous “Art on File “and didn’t come from the regular printers used in other years .Cool ! ….But, So be it…when we get “OURS” designed …they will be right (Gona post this over at the Bogus Decal thread too)

MAY 23 2010. 34 years since the last time slip was given out. who was it given to? maybe casey,maybe me. or is it someone else? with all the items people are finding in attics about DDS ,i wonder if one of joe or chets family members could find the old checkbook from the track? this would have the name of the last racer they wrote a check to,hopefully.i saw joe’s daughter is on here. who knows? REMEMBER,A MOMENT OF SILENCE TOMORROW FOR MAY 23,1976

    I’m sure it was the 23rd, I was not working that day, and had my car there. I broke the spline’d end of the pinion off on my first TT, loaded up and went home. Went to work at McCallum Chevrolet in Fishkill on Monday, and Phil”Swampy’s Toy” Marsh told me that Dover was no more. I was stunned to the point of not being able to talk. There were rumors of all kinds, and I never got a straight answer from anyone on the reason or reasons, but I always felt it had to do with the property being sold, and the insurance carrier canceling the policy. I just don’t know, but it sure did ruin my summer. …………Mikey 😥

    P.S. Just real glad this site is here, and I get to talk to you guys again. 😆 😆

    More info unfolding…Bruce from Brigeport last Track manager…SuperSport Pete might have made Last run for ‘stocker” King of the hill…Not sure If Gunn remembers good anymore…But Casey-Feola Run for Modified a pretty sure thing.reason Pete (Who Won) might be last ever run is cause Modified ran Before lower classes.Right? Pete remembers getting the check so He might have had last run-time slip.
