My Old C/GAS Nova-Mikeys Race Car storys

I got a picture on my Facebook page today of a car I have not seen since 1976, when I disassembled it and sold off most of the parts when I stopped drag racing and got into dirt circle track racing. This was my first really competitive race car anywhere I went . The picture really brought back memories. The guy is on the DDS site as "novaman66", my buddy Frank Lucato, a former member of the Dutchess Racing Association from Wappinger Falls,N.Y. Thanks Frank..............Mikey :lol:

What track is that ....? and tell him to send that photo so I can scan at HIGH resolution and clean up -edit...tried, but on site at low res...it's just a blur. And how 'bout some history about Duchess Club in the Club section? Oh-who's the hippie chick?

That is Dover. I got there late and the money pits were full, there was a special show that day, and I had to park in the general pit area. Also, I have posted the club in Car clubs, Dutchess Racing Association.
I was president for 2 years. We were an NHRA Charter Club, located behind
"Six Fiends" machine shop(Valley Performance) in Wappinger Falls. The other club that I belonged to was the Southern Dutchess Timing Association of Beacon, N.Y. which I also posted with a couple of pictures...............Mikey :lol:

Pat, the more I look at that picture, plus you, Don, and Shimer busting my chops, I think you are right. I saw another picture quite similar that I know was Dover, and mixed them up. Well you know how it is, "some days the elevator, some days the shaft". ..............Mikey :lol: :lol:

Mikey like I tell my wife I get no satisfaction out of being right.Then she tells me to go **** yourself. This site should be required reading for all drag racing seniors because it has made everyone THINK alittle harderand keep those burnt out 60s brain cells active and rebuilt (got this Don)
