First a poetry page, now a story page.

This place is better than a Hot Rod magazine. Very interesting seeing a lowered drag car without the fenders cut out on that Fiver!

....continue!

Sorry for the delay in the next Chapter. I sent the wrong one to Colin. That has been corrected, but he has not been on here yet.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Fun fact, that race track is now Castrol Raceway, and a couple years ago switched back to NHRA sanctioning after being under IHRA for many years. A number of local deep-pocket race car owners saved it from extinction a few years back. I've personally spent a lot of hours there as a youth and an adult, and have a lot of fond memories of watching races there.

I think I have also sat in those stands, Snopro. It would have been in '72 or '73. There was a B body Plymouth with a 383 and four speed running that I took a special interest in because I had just acquired a B body Dodge with the same powertrain.

If you sat in the stands in the early 70's, it would have been at Speedway Park (Edmonton International Speedway), which was located in what is now a residential neighborhood in North Edmonton. Speedway Park closed in 1982 after being annexed by the City of Edmonton, and Capital Raceway (which became Labatt Raceway, then Budweiser Motorsports Park, and now Castrol Raceway) which Dr. C was referring to opened in 1991 next to the Edmonton International Airport south of Edmonton between Nisku and Devon.
