Mas racing checking in.went to Lebanon for the divisional with both cars this weekend BJ qualified no5 with a 6.90 at 195mph I got my little small block in at no 35 with a 7.56 later ran a7.44 I still have a smile on my face . BJ made it down to 4 cars did a great job very proud of him. Had a nice talk with patina he was the only other guy I saw wearing a Dover shirt.then this guy comes up to me and tells me he raced at dover with a 32 ford and still has it! an hour later he comes back driving the 32 just to show me! the gentlemans name is Bob Mc Dowell .he drives the car on the street now .dose this name ring a bell with any one. Dale Hall came up with his son Scott on friday another top dragster racer . Really nice to talk to Dale about some of the old day’s of junior fuel and comp . also met another Dover guy Larry Archer said he was the time slip guy . None of these guys own A computer but all said they will try to come to th reunion or the October race All in all it was a great weekend . Oh I almost forgot about Digger Dave he and his wife came up on Sunday I had him sit in my car just so he can remember what it’s like ! I took some pictures and will put them up some time this week. Gonna get some sleep now im’e pooped.
Mas how cool is that , ❗ that just people seeing you wearing a “DOVER” shirt can make a guy go back and get his car and come and show it to you , He likes cars and MISSES DOVER VERY MUCH !!! more then once and more then three times 😆 I too have had people tell me when they saw the shirt that I was wearing “That They Raced At Dover” ………..one guy even said “Man thats an Old Shirt” … an boy did I straighten him out 😆 :!:….I told him it was a “New Old Shirt” 😆
You are so right Tomato just talking about Dover makes me feel like a kid again!
