Once again …For eveyone with a video or camera…We’ll “Do The Time Warp” . Parade right before the Funny Cars kick off the Eliminations about 1 pm Sunday…leading The Parade Will be this years Grand Marshall >>> SKIP NORTH! Skip was a fixture at Dover from it’s early days right up through the closing year. He first drove some doorslammers first, then Built what would become “T for TWO”, a square rollbar T bucket altered. A one time President Of the Fairfield Timing Assoc. He joined the Club when it started in 1957. He continued to run ‘T for Two ‘while campaigning his “Soul Sauce” C/D. Then came a longer wheelbase C’/D and finishing up with a former Ed Pink Car with a Hemi he called “Mother”. In the 70’s Skip Moved to Millerton just to be close to the Track. He currently maintains Skip Barbar’s personal ‘fleet” of Classic Cars. Dover All the Way For Sure. There every sunday and The Guy to count on for just about anything.
