    Yes Pat, I will email you the pics. I know what you mean about a lack of ambition. This quarantine grows on ya and
    after a while you get use to it. ūüôā Pat, I was making emails and phone calls to the Valley days before the event about
    allowing spetators and finally they (Lebanon Valley) made a post on their site welcoming spectators to this event but
    all COVID19 regulations to be practiced. It was different there but glad I went. We stayed for about 3 hours.
    Yeah Pete, getting Pat’s Willys would have been like winning the lotto. ūüôā He builds great stuff! ūüôā Everyone be safe
    and take care of friends and family. NHRA returns to Indy the next 2 weekends, so don’t forget to tune into FOX tv
    if you do not have NHRAtv (live streaming)……Be well !

    Later – Frank…

    Well HERE WE GO AGAIN!!! The ADIRONDAK CAR SHOW annually, in Lake George, in Sept. was canceled,
    as of yesterday, this risk,was to avoid this damned virus!!!
    My gut feeling, the same will be for this year’s ‘Dover’ Nostalgia Drags 2020. For all that attend
    it, I can’t put it in my mind, how the strip can control the spread of the virus, by people not
    wearing masks,and the six foot distances apart? There coming in from all over the states,to run,
    not just surrounding states,around New York! I HOPE I’M WRONG!!!….Pete.

    I do like ‘bikers’, however,shocked when I saw them, this weekend, hold a ‘rally’,in town at
    Lake George, calling it The Underground Americade Event! Had they followed the rules ( now the
    law!) between masks, and distancing,wouldn’t have bothered me!
    However,clustered, to close together,with there bikes,and with “NO” masks, bothered me, BIG
    TIME! YES! The’re ‘decent’ guys, but ‘NO’ common sense! Local cops, WHERE ARE YOU TO PROTECT,AND
    ENFORCE THE LAW!!! Enough said,about this!
    Pete.

    Also, the person who started the ‘rumor’ the ‘Valley’ was sold to local racers,for 650 g’s, are
    you the same person who has the Brooklyn Bridge,for sale at one dollar??? Don’t make me laugh!!!

    OK … Been Hunkered Down …Busy At Work BUT in Constant Contact Weekly And sometimes Daily -with Wayne¬† (Lebanon Manager ) Monitoring EVERYTHING¬† in the Great State Of New York (Ha ! ) Get a Cooler And A Bag Of Chips. . . .this will be LONG.

    [1] ALL registered on the Forum Must Update Your E-Mail address at Your Profile

    …………..That Way you’ll Get Direct Mail Of All Important Updates right to Your inbox – since our forum softwear no longer has a mass e-mail function ( We Now Use Mailchimp.)¬† ¬†TIMES ‘They Are A-Changing ”

    [2] I’ve Said it before (many times) …. The Forum was started in 2008 before cell phones-twitter-facebook-instagram. the whole site has been upgraded about 4 times to keep up with technology that changes about every 18 monthes .remember windows 95? I’m On 10 now.

    Many in the past past 5-6 years have migrated to social media AND many use cell phones as their only messaging . That has created a drop in actual desk top / lap and other real computer use. Our Analytics at Drag Strip Gone.com¬† shows over 63 % of orders are placed on Cell Phones. This Forum is Not Social Media ,Except for This “Daily Chat” with if you remember was labeled Our Form of Facebook way back. ALL the other Content is ARCHIVED historical Facts and reports For All to Add to with their contribution. BUT many expect to be daily ‘entertained with someone else,providing new posts. Back then It Was Usually ME. But I only got 2 hands and 24 hours in a day .So As I dropped posting SO did All Of You. You All Missed the Point…I Created Topic Headings¬† For YOU GUYS to add your spin to which would expand the topic with facts ,figures and history.Go Look at the Headings and How Come hardly any of YOU took the time to embellish the subject ? Some Have 2 -3 -4 reply’s ? with over 1500 active ?

    My e-Mail is dino@doverdragstrip.com … Nobody sending my anything for years… we have the reply function to any topic here and direct messaging . I’m Fully Aware many of you Are not on Facebook or Twitter. But I Am Big Time .Our Facebook Dover DragStrip Page can get 10,000 views ( Instant communication-direct messages ,etc.)¬† … if I share And so¬† do others¬† on multiple other group pages. I Know …Iv’e Been quiet e Here …But No More . I’ll use Any Platform To ‘Get The Word Out) on Dates.time & updates.

    That Just Set the Stage For My Next Posts…Each On A different Topic. You may Agree Or Disagree with some of my observations …A LOT of my last 3 months of information gathering has been through “citizen Journalists” on Twitter..I’ve Dripped a Few Out on my Dino Lawrence Facebook page. stand by …..Dino

    UPDATE: About Lebanon Valley & Our Event ‘quick summery’…

    First…The Track IS open And Functioning within Guide lines Of Crazy Gov. (My Opinion)…Ah -he just Banned Chicken wings as a “Meal”” In Bars.

    …. Full “Track Operations” through last couple of months to follow…. Dino Knows All

    SECOND…. The Dover Drag Strip Nostalgia Drags IS ON and Fully Expected to happen

    I know WHY ¬†the Adirondack National car show being canceled. Quote: ‘We would not be able to follow the current guidelines from the CDC and other agencies in order to have a safe show. We will continue to plan for next year‚Äôs car show being held on September 9-12 2021.” Note CDC guidelines have changed every¬† ¬†other week as have other “media” foolishness & contradicting “Experts” (I Have the Data) …Another Post With Links specifically on “COVID” it will blow your Mind.

    ……….a few changes will be put into play (no Biggee) SO Wait Til I Update ALL the new specifics in The Event Topics. I’ll Give you a direct link to that when I type all the changes

    Don’t Worry All Elim.s and Stuff we usually Do Are In Place.

    Last Couple Of Months ( LEBANON¬† VALLEY Operations) …Inside Scoop Oh- It Didn’t Get Sold… thats dumb.

    First – Gov Said No Outside Gatherings without “restrictions” …most without ANY scientific data to back up why. So Lebanon Dragway instigated Track Rentals as replacement for Test & Tune” ,with prepay and limited to 70 cars …No Spectators just crew and “general admission’ to eliminate “Spectators.”..an appeasement to State. That Worked out Ok .

    They Just Ran A Div. 1 Event with 400 cars AND an Import event with about 170 cars and “some” folks ( Not Spectators) filling¬† about half the stands.

    Some Locals Complained and they were served “papers” 3 weeks back,Nothing Became of that…As A matter of fact , Track contacted a couple of state senators And A Fed Judge RULED Chomos¬† Outside event restrictions were Potentially Un Constitutional And Immediately pit an Infringement on them .Gov Looses -Track Wins. As Of Today …the last few weeks have had no effect on them running regular track points races and test n tune. also the two bigger events Mentioned. Of Note- The Import Sunday Event had Traffic backed up both ways to gate¬† almost a mile . They All came at once (Folks want To Race!)So Far So Good with precedents set for potentially now¬† no future action.

    Now The Oval Speedway is another story..Doesn’t effect Us (Drags racing) So I won’t go into that.

    COVID Rules And Restrictions. I’m Sorry if you don’t agree but Most Have no Scientific data to back them up. Who Made Them ? Why? Each State Gov came Up with Their Own Rules …Based On ?¬† So As sheep we “had” to Comply. Take The Time To research …I Did The WHO,CDC, IMI ,Faucy,and Tons More “Experts” Have Flip-Flopped,contradicted and Media has made their own Assumptions” …Who do you Follow?…Have You Been Lied To ?…how do you know when you’ve been lied to? …Why ?If You Dig Deep…Said All That to say …We Will¬† operate Our Event Any Way “they” rule To Pull It Off.

    Masks :

    Consider that on May 21 of this year, the highly respected New England Journal of Medicine stated,

    ‚ÄúWe know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.‚ÄĚ
