    No I'm not going to race it. In this case I'm only transporting it down as Doug will be trailering his 65. But it will be my first time driving one, maybe I can lose him in traffic and do a quick stop at Atco:Brow:

    Re: drags

    I think it stands for Mid Atlantic Nostalga Drag Racing Assosiation.

    The Mandra cars usually total about 25 or 30 and really have no effect on the Buicks. The good news it helps differ the cost of the track rental because we get to put their money towards the track fee which in turn helps with the payouts for the race classes. It is also cool to see these cars run!

    As long as the one dumb#@#$ isn't there racing in and out of the pits like last year......

    Looks like we aren't going to be able to make it to Cecil this year, but we sure did have a blast last year.

    I guess that means we all have to party hardy for you and save some of the partying for Norwalk in the Spring:beer

    Shame you two can't make it, but sometimes things do come up. I'll be taking a ton of shots along with Larry and Alan and a few other photographers.

    Could someone e-mail me a flier at happytrevor@msn.com. My computer doesn't support the file to get it from the links. I planned to make this race when I found out about the big money at Norwalk the same weekend. Would like to know the class breakdowns along with payouts and entry fees and gamblers races. Also aprox. time race would be over on Saturday, may make this race and haul to Norwalk for Sunday to try for the big money. Thanks, Dennis

    Well I arrived at the Crystal Inn around 6pm and there are a bunch of guys here already! The weather is looking great for Friday and Saturday so come on down. The Michigan and Ohio gang are here and John and Robin Stevens just came in from Indiana. Trailers are pulling in as I write this and parking is already starting to get tight. Will update tomorrow nite with some ets.

    The weather looked like it flip flopped a few times but should hold out. Unfortunately for me, some things came up and I won't be able to make it as I had originally planned. :(
    Hope everyone has a great time.

    My best to all!

    Hey Dennis Halladay do you think you could handle the East Coast Meet? There might be some mediocre drivers with delay boxes attending. Don't expect double the payout if you win either!:moonu:

    Rob Giroux with the blue 70 GS from Mass won the gambler's race today. He ran Dave Saye from Texas who owns John Jrs old car. Dave had an electrical problem on the line and Rob got a bye to win the $320 pot. Some breakage today with John Massoud hurting the engine, Bruno Dipalo hurting his as well and Greg Voss hurting his rear end. We had 65 cars racing today which was our largest for a Friday in the 7 years of this event. More news tomorrow.
