MY FIRST POST …just a few hours after we went Live Online:
I know that when I first heard about the site, I was a little skeptical, I just could not figure out how a website about an old race track(what I considered my home track)could possibly have to offer anyone. After my first visit, and talking on the phone to Dino, I was hooked. Too many memories to mention, and seeing posts by old friends was almost too much. Then Dino steered me to the M&M site, and I renewed pretty much a 32 year old friendship with Rich Marchese. I’m now an administrator on the M&M site, and I travel down to Davie, Fl. a couple of times a month to help out wherever I can. I don’t know how Becky puts up with me for two and sometimes three days in a row. Good thing the two dogs like me, or I’d really be in trouble. Well, I’ve rambled on enough, talk to you guys down the road. ………….Mikey 😆
P.S. Rich is in the hospital, flareups of some health problems, plus he does not know when to slow down and rest. He wanted me to post something, and let everyone know that he’s feeling better, and will rest up and be back at it as soon as possible. Please don’t call Becky, she has a lot on her plate right now. Call my cell, she will be staying in touch with me, and I’ll keep you posted. Cell, 407-394-6830 Thanks…………………Mikey, Rich, and Becky 😆
You have every right to be proud Dino, keep up the great work
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOVER WEB SITE
Where did 2 years go??? Making this Dover thing a reality, thats where. A big thanks to Dino for all the hard work keepin’ the memories alive. Sept.’s race is sneaking up fast!!
GREAT JOB DINO !!! Time flies, doesn’t it ?
Thanks for keeping the family together.
Dino Lawrance deserves a lot of credit for being a truly excellent promo man in his own right.
One really major thing needs to be brought up. The whole thing about The resurection of the first “Helz-A-Poppin” dragster wouldn’t have happened if not for this forum. Now, that’s a real feather in our cap isn’t it…?
A lot of good things wouldn’t have happened… but did. And credit is due right here.
