      I just wanted to say hi to all you Dover Drag Strip folks. I raced at Dover from 1971 to 1973 and had a great time there.I raced a red and black 66 nova 283 ss M/stock and won a lot in that class but moved up to super stock/ J ,but did not do so good there. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to Dino, Brian and all who helped to make this web site posible, great job guys. Ok ,thats all for now keep up the good work. Frank the novaman66

            Great I wasn’t sure if it had any sound,too much fumes from the pits. Any Idea when we will get to see any of the films?

                  Frank,
                  Those photo’s must be early 73′, before the Chondek Christmas Tree lighting system made
                  its appearance at Dover.
                  Still looking for the M/S stock photo’s of 72′. Did you run in L/S in 71′?

                          Dino,

                          Don’t forget X/S, with those high-performance version VW’s (1967 models).
                          I remember how you would crack up our whole family with your German accent, when they went down the track, running 19.00’s. Your description of them racing was worth the price of admission, and some. Priceless stuff. Wish someone had a tape of that.
                          Also, our buddy Tommy Maglauski ran a white 64′ MG Midget in Y/S, against the low-performance VW’s (Yes they made a low-performance version, pre 67′, I think). Smoked the 1/4 in 19.60’s.
                          As for I/Stock, I’m not sure. It couldn’t have been Irving/Stock, because I don’t think there
                          were that many Jewish racers at Dover (OY VE).
                          Wasn’t Dover 3/4 Italian like everyone else on this planet. FANABLA

                          Love You, Paulie

                                Frank,
                                Sounds like that orange Toyota Corolla must have been painted Vitamin “C” Hemi orange.
                                With the 17.40 ET times, you must have had a radical camshaft, make that half a camshaft
                                in the mini-hemi.
                                Probably “Lakewood” traction bars too.
                                Go Y/Stock, (That’s YODELL/STOCK) Staging Lane too high a number.

                                paul
