CULLY …How ‘ bout a report from that show… DID BY ANY CHANCE —> tracks have event Flyers-rules FOR Nostalgia Dates ?
Dose any one out there belong to neto they could help us set this thing up.I WILL LOOK AT THE NHRA SCHEDULE a lot of the dover racers still go to these races I think early august would be good.Would you guys want to do a cookout the day before?
Here is the brake down on NETO classes
cut off date 1974 body style including funny cars
and dragsters have to front engine
Index start at 7.00 and increases by .25
(7.00, 7.25, 7.50, 7.75, 8.00,8.25, 8.50, 8.75, 9.00, 9.25, 9.50, 9.75)
A racer put the index group he runs on the window and the tower adjusts the
Handicap start, ref: 7.50 car against 8.50, the 8.50 car leaves first.
NETO uses a .400 PRO TREE for this class.
Than there is Nostalgia=
Starts at 10.00 and slower any dial
uses .500 full tree
Just like stockers do it today in NHRA.
Go to http://www.neto-nostalgia.com all the rules are on there
For both classes and what MINUMN electronics are allowed.
Some of NTEO ’09 dates are on the web page
usually Island, Lebanon, Atco have nostalgia events races/car shows
with the area nostalgia groups there.
As does E-town and Maple Grove.
When I get the nostalgia dates I’ll Post them.
Only pictures I have of Island are of NETO cars launching off the line
No over view shots, V-Bob you have any..
Of what I remember the other nostalgia clubs in the area use a number/class brake down,
Nost 1, Nost 2, etc, or wording like this and have their indexs per group.
Maybe the east Coast Gassers web page might have all this info
Do not have site info for East Coast Nostalgia Stock/Super Stock assoc,
Or MANDRA, (midatlantice nostalgia drag racing assoc.)
maybe V-Bob has something on these two web addresses.
Maybe put a note in National Dragster, East Coast Drag News,
Drag Racer mag, also the contact person for IHRA paper
that this is in the making
and that current racing Dover Dragstrip racers please contact event organizer
if interested in comming as long as it is
not on any Divisional / National event dates,
they might be running for season championships.
Sorry to miss the fest had to keep the school campus clean for
classes being given, looked like a lot of fun from the video & pictures,
thanks to you’s 😯 for allowing the rest of us to see the HAPPY TIMES.
Hey Bobby S.
My vote would be to follow NETO’s Comp and Nostalgia classes with one addition. Add 2 heads-up classes, door and open cockpit cars. Make it a fastest car wins class with minimum rules. This can be a nice throughback to the old days. Are we going to open this to all “nostalgia type ” cars in the northeast or is this a Dover only event ? As most of us know, there are ALOT of cars in this part of the country that are into the nostalgia thing including many dragsters,funny cars and gassers. What’s everybody’s opinion??
Report on the A.C. Motorsports expo. Was there for the doors to open @ 10 am sat. The crowd was smaller than previous years. Drag racing related displays were Englishtown big display covering all of the different venues; they had Roger
Toths nostalgia fueler on display. Kenny Koretsky had his Nitro fish cars. Jake Crimmons 1972 Mustang nostalgia nitro
funny car. This year trenton speedway had a big display of cars and some of the drivers appearing also.
Bobby and the rest ….Don’t worry about the “Press Release” to get the word out …Thats what I do best. BUT who’s going to be the”contact” person…Need to nail down some details first.
Check out http://www.speedwayexpo.com an upcoming show in W.Springfield, Ma. Feb 27-28 and March 1. Dover should
get abooth there have an old Dover racecar on display Sell tshirts, sign up ODF members and get the word out that
we are having a nostalgia drag race.
I’ve worked these shows ,Ran my own and this event is 90% oval track …Wouldn’t even come close to breaking even on Motel and Booth rental. I can reach more with Drag Racer target marketing with proven techniques. Still… DON”T have a race,, to promote, date, anything .
OK OK so lets see we have Dino 1, as public relations, HVY70SS,V-Bob,jimv,storm king,masracingtd1167,tomatohead, as current racers 6 and cullyflower and Bobby S. planning board 2….. ❓ ❓ is this right ❓ this is only 9 guys …………………………………and theres like 160 views on this post………………….and there is like around 290 members on the form ❓ ………………..I think we are going to need a couple more guys for this thing ❓ I think more then 6 of us want to race ❓ ….I can run in a race show, but I never ran a race show before , so I hope we can get some help from someone with the “Brains” and “Know How” for this to take place ……….what do you guys think ❗ lets hear some ideas ……..EVERYBODY………………………………………………………tomato and YES I WILL BRING CORN FOR THE COOKOUT !!! all we have to do is boil water ❗ 😀 😆
The Tomato-man hit it on the ole nail on the head ….Who’s for this ? Check-in…you guys have e-mail & private messaging on this forum ….go to profile of contactee by clicking on their user name . Suggest someone type up a outline after getting some details nailed down… scan /send or fax. plus get some phone work going. Need -track- date-rules??? A meeting would be smart for most guys in general driving distance ???
WROTE THIS BACK IN EARLY DEC…..Thought you needed a reminder 😀
I’m seeing the possability of a real ODF NOSTALGIA RACING TEAM …what with the current projects under construction AND…what I feel the Site has Sparked…. SERIOUS thoughts of “getting back into it”….Bulding Clones” …Finding old half restored cars and finishing them. ……. Just “Imagine “AND thats what we’re all about” …they way we did it back then is
THE WAY WE COULD DO IT NOW …IMAGINE —-> Then Take the idea to Being Real …Concept to Reality ! This Is MY “Imagine” :
An Announcer —-(Me Of Course) at say Island or Lebanon says:
