    Hey Rich, I remember that day that you had that incident with Ralph’s
    corvette in the burn-out area ! OUCH !! If I remember correctly, Ralph
    pulled out his duct tape and patched his baby up and continued racing.
    What an eye catching corvette that was ! Loved it !! 🙂

    I remember it too. Boy was Ralph pissed. For a few seconds, he was absolutely speechless. After those few seconds though, well, you don’t want to know. Lets just say that it was very colorful!! …………..Mikey 😆

    quote BOBBY S.:

    I posted this before and
    remember when me & Andy towed this home from the barn/garage it was in.
    Think Gary was his name, owned-HATCH’S ALL AMERICAN station in peekskill.
    Has to cut the trees away from the doors of the building.
    Early 70’s if I remember. Had no motor in it but the trans and headers were there.
    We never got it on the track plans changed, was sold to a local guy
    left out side for about 2 yrs, that POOF gone no one remebers for sure where it went
    stories it stayed in the lake carmel area but no proof.
    Another piece of Dover history gone but not forgotten,,
    Bobby S.

    i worked with GARY PEARCE at AT&T in white plains. he worked the night shift as a tech and i worked days. we used to talk about his racing ventures at dover.
