Food Concession run by American Legion. Politics to get Permit…Help us with the town…you guys run the Food..Made enough over the years to build “club House”at corner of Rt 22 to turn left to track…I mistakenly mentioned “Lions Club” in intro at Homepage.Never Had “trophy Booth” in later years..the old one was behind the food stand… you got that stuff at Time Slip Booth.
How was the food…?
Hey don’t make fun, I got agita many times from there, but never tomain. 😆 😀
Coffee was terrible..especially if you had a hangover…But had “specials” like corn on the cob. Leroy Chapple of “right down the road” ran it ,the Cub Scouts and a bunch of other stuff. Lived over the old Western Auto store by the tracks opposite “Sam’s-(Gene’s) Got that info from Dan Emerson at Moroso. He grew up in Town …has great Stories !
the corn on the cob was the best .. dipped the whole thing in melted butter ..we called the hot dogs death dogs and the bergers were some form of dead animal.. you were O K after you puicked it up.. 😆 😆 😆 Billy
do you have any of that stuff UP SATIRS 😳
can have a DNA done in it to see what it was made from 😆
Yep ..keep his first Dover Dog with the socks he wore too …the wife scared to go up there….strange noises late at night .
Now I remember …there was Also A “Food Concession” stand on the spectator side ….smaller and THE only structure over there , except for bleachers and a lot of dirt parking.
I beg to differ, but there certainly was a seperate trophy booth from the timing shack. I hung around in it with Freddie Murphy and Carl Spidel in the early days. At one point it was directly behind the food consession from the tower, later it was moved a bit further away on the pit road. I’ve got pics and movies of it.
the trophy booth was before the finish line … coming up the return road first was the et. slip booth , then then there was a left turn into the pits, just past that on the left was the trophy booth up high … Charlie Tanner worked there for quite some time giving trophy’s and writing checks before he started anouncing
Casey…Stormy….Brainfade here….remember now …That WAS Charlies job. Thats why he always had a pocket full of winers decals…..wonder where THEY all are? Ya see , I didn’t “get out Much” (stuck in tower to the Mic), LIKE TO SEE THOSE MOVIES Gary ! send them !
Dino… did you ever fall out of the tower after lunch… 😆 😆 😆
Ha Ha …Guess you saw “my ACT’ at sams…My Lunch was Three Wine Coolers …Drink 1/3 down, fill up with Beer…Chug ’em And go back and Announce… DUH ! Not proud of it …but thats the way it was …And No didn’t fall out….with the pressured run after run …non stop… had to pay attention to everything at once …that “lunch” effect was “burned up” in about 20 min.
