Re: Who's on line? the DAILY 'CHAT' that never ends

Drag racing generations just continue to carry on....How about Austin Prock, tuner Jimmy Prock's son? Did real well in first T/F event. Of course his grandfather Tom was an early gasser then F/C racer. Dino, I believe there are some pics on the site of the Prock and Howell gasser running at Dover fr...

Re: "Grandpa Dover" has made his Last Run

As many others, I never knew of him back when I raced at Dover in '73 & '74. As years went on, along with helping Dino with the beginnings of the Nostalgia Drags at Island, I learned a lot about him. Went to many of his reunions at Danbury. Finally got a chance to meet him a few years back at LVD fo...

Re: Who's on line? the DAILY 'CHAT' that never ends

So sad to hear about the passing of Jack Merkel. I first met him in the early '70's when he was working for S/K Speed in Long Island. He did all my motor work right up until he closed his shop on the island. Glad I got to see him get inducted to the Hall of Fame @ the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion In Epping ...

Re: UNBELIEVABLE AERIAL PHOTO FIND

Dino...Really cool you did that. I went up there in 2009 (before Island Reunion)..walked the whole area...got some "souvenirs". I KNEW that body of water WASN'T there back in the '70s when I ran there. Loved the way you lined that up perfectly.

Re: EARLY CABIN FEVER !!...

Great pics K-Man!...I hear that about cabin fever. I ran @ LVD just 2 weeks ago and it was 68 degrees! Was looking at Atco this weekend but now they are talking lows here in the teens!! Both Atco and Cecil cancelled mid week T&T due to low temps. I guess I'm in denial (LOL!)...seasons over. Keep the...
