    Joe Morrison Posted His weekend on facebook:
    “Update from Lebanon Valley: (I’m sure my racing friends can relate to this one). Saturday race- rained out. Forecast for Sunday @ 7 PM Saturday night: 20% chance of rain. Drive 220 miles, get to the track at 12:30AM, sleep on the trailer floor next to the race car, wake up at 7:00AM to the sound of rain. Sunday Race: cancelled. 1/2 way home, stop at a rest stop to change the tire that exploded on the trailer while driving on the NY Thruway. Yup, another glamorous racing weekend!!!
    The good news: we’re still in 1st place with 2 races left. Next Saturday: Atco Raceway!!! ” Joe

    Dino,
    Thank you for setting up a forum dedicated to NETO,My son Vinny Jr has the points lead in the Nostalgia division with his strong wheel standing 70 Chevelle.I am chasing Joe Morrison and crew by three rounds as Joe stated,and relish the challenge of chasing the top driver and crew in the Comp division.My 69 Camaro is tuned(set on kill) and primed for strong run down the stretch which will lead to some fun and exciting racing in the last two races of the season.Stay tuned! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Regards,
    Vinny Laurita Sr.

    Wow the NETO Fall finals at Island was a hotly contested event.I won the race outright and took the NETO Comp Division Championship on the last day.To make things even better,my son Vinny Jr took the Nostalgia Division Championship giving the Laurita’s a clean sweep of both NETO Titles.
    Special thanks to Bob LaRegina at Valley Chassis Works(the best by far)for setting my Camaro up for the strong stretch run.
    Vinny Laurita Sr

    NETO Race 18, the final race of the 2012 season, was completed on Sunday Oct 14 at Island Dragway. 38 racers were in attendance to finish the season in great style. In Nostalgia eliminator (21 cars) Chris Regan, driving the Team Regan Corvette lasted through a tough field for her third win of the season. Guy Johnson, in his unique “Milk Wagon” was a very close runner up. In Comp Eliminator the ten…sion was so thick it could be cut with a knife! The Comp championship was up for grabs, with only one round of racing separating season long leader Joe Morrison and second place Vinny Laurita Sr. When the day was done Vinny Laurita Sr won the race and the Comp Eliminator championship. Jim Mullen was runner up in his fast and beautiful Vega. This was the end of a great season of racing and marked the first time a Father Son pair are co champions. Congratulations to Vinny Laurita Jr for his Nostalgia Eliminator championship and dad Vinny Sr. for his Comp Elim championship! There will be some heavy “Laurita partying” at the awards banquet.
    And special thanks to all the racers, families, fans and great race tracks which made this fine season possible. See you next season for more great NETO racing.

    I’m trying to get a hold of a guy I met at the 2012 drags at lebanon. It was a 55 chevy Neto car. It had IFS still. Went 9s. I think It was black. He was hanging out on saturday after the rain. He was parked next to the verminator ford.

    He had a Moroso cable drive tach that he was running electrical. I’d like to find out who converted the tach.

    Thats Rich from Don”s Speed Shop

    Rich, you might want to call– Ron at Williamson`s, they do all kinds of conversion of gauges, tachs, clocks etc, a real nice guy to talk to, he did my tachs for my dragster to work with a mag, (that usto be a 2 peice system tach & black box). He said when I first called him he can convert tachs to works with all systems. I would think he can convert the cable drive to electric. The “tach guy” shop does not have parts for the old stuff, give Ron a call. Hope it works for you.
