        JUNE …I’m not usually like this BUT ..when I read your story “I started To cry like a baby”…Can’t type too good right now .. The “Got Your Back “line just Hit me like a Brick ….If For NOTHING ELSE…We Gotta Keep this thing going , for ALL OUR Dover Family -Where ever they are now …It’s Stories like that That make it all worth it .

        ……………………..Ok …Recomposed ..Had to go Blow my nose 😉 speechless, From Our Song Dover Days: “Magic Moments in My Mind ..Takes me back to a differant Time “… Oh -THE KID DID GOOD….REAL GOOD ….That ’55 red-lighted on the first yellow .Sending you, for the whole Family ,a full version of the song .


            wow…..that story makes what was already a great day….even more special…..I was nervous before the final too….becase every car I raced after it got dark got very loose next to me…soooo ……his emotions were very real…..My Dad and I race together….and that makes all of our race days cool……


                Just Talked to KEVIN Dunn..Had nothing but Attaboys for eveyone..Had A ball…Willys got Lots of Looks .People freaking ’cause it’s all Steel. Wished He Could have hung in ,but long drive back to Rhode Island.Also commented that we need some social time to cook-out and “BS”


                    I have been sitting back, just taking all this in and said let everybody speak. God knows I’m all over this forum. After reading June’s letter and a few others I once again realized something. Dover was more than a little dragstrip, it was and STILL IS all about family and friends. The connections made then and now will last a lifetime. I wonder how many of the mega dragstrips can say that?? Letters like the ones on this thread will only motivate Dino and myself to work harder and to keep it the way it is, NEVER going beyond what Dover was about. The suggestions/ideas so far are REAL great. Keep up the brainstorming, folks!!
