Tommy was a great guy and I am glad to have known him. He is pictured in my photos in the ODF gallery. He jumped in front of my camera when I was shooting I think the Norwich Nova. When I was running in “C” Stock during his days in that class, he would make a point of letting me get ahead of him in the staging lanes so that I could run against someone else before he eventually beat me later in the afternoon.
After he left the Stock class, he did run in a Gas class for a while but I was already gone from Dover at that point and I am not sure what car he was running then. I saw one of the posted Dover Results that had him winning in either G or H gas in ’68 or ’69.
RIP Tom. You are missed.
………………..THIS IT ?
Wow Casey…….You really got around…..Another picture of the famous Casey wheelwells………. 😆 😆 😆
That’s it, a very young Tom Iorizzo in either ’65 or ’66. He was working on his plugs between runs and jumped in. It was the Lohmann Nova as we can see and not the Norwich Nova.
Dino….Just looking back at some older posts (2010) and your last line stated “only at the fast track”…I never knew you worked at another track . 😆 …..The only thing fast about Dover were the clocks. 😕 ….NOT the track….. 🙄 ….
Don I actually did ( guest) announce at another track. Budds Creek ,Md., when it was still called Budds Creek,for a big funny car show in around 68-69… since the Dover Days I’ve announced at special events at Fayetteville Dragway,Piedmont Dragway,Rockingham Dragway and now of course Island & Lebanon…even did a night at Riverside Park in Mass. with Stock Cars.
Budds Creek was a cool place…I ran there with Labriola years ago…..Didn’t know you got around so much dude 😎 P.S. Here we go again, topic within topic 😆 😆 😆
aaah what the heck …forgot …I “Annouced-D-J’d” every Sat night 82-88 at my Summer Cruise at The Sycamore in Bethel,Ct.
