Larry's comments from the Oct 11, 2002 race

Had a very nice time last night at the track! We had 7-8 cars there. I picked up some goodies on the way- burgers, pop- chips and a roasted chicken. As the old saying goes- don't go shopping when your hungry! Well i got to the track and wanted to talk to every one- but the chicken was getting cold!I wolfed the whole thing down in 10.2 seconds at 135 bits per second! It was a great night to race. Paul P. almost broke into the 11's with a stock turbo-yikes! Joe R. made it to the high 11's-gotta watch that guy. Jerry T. hit the 11.20's- he's gotta new boost control set up-nice! Kevin T. is happy with his new mass air flow sys- still jugglin the chips- almost hit the 11's. Ed C. and his family out of Rochester was there with yet another one of "T"s- I lost track - How many does he have? He almost had a 13 sec. run- its his dailydriver.-all stock. Don F.joined us- has a new turbo T-had problem with the mass air flow.. Yep- Jerry had a spare in his van! I swear, he has one of everything in that van! Oh- Don also has a T with a big block in it- runs low 6's in the 8th--thats a nice ride! Phil T. had his new ride out- has some serious power- just getten the bugs out.Oh- new car- new trailor- nice set up! And then there was Paul C. out of Olean. Yep- first time racing!! He was siked!He did OK!- Ran high 20's!!! HUH?? Well-he left his GN home and was racing his dailey driver- an 86' Nissan Pick-up?? What dah heck is that? I "immediately" expelled him from our group!Not really- his GN is not ready yet- having an oil pressure problem. He enjoyed the experience of racing though. And finally there was me-- I ate alot, talked alot, cooked food- and ate more and took acouple pictures! It was a good evening-No car and I didn't Break Anything!!

Larry's comments from the Jun 25, 2003 cruise in

It was all good , except for our clubs representation- we had only two cars there. Mike Hamilton and Nick Leonardis were the shinning lights as they brought there rides. Overall,there were some 120 - 150 cars there. Guys blowing their tires off in the burn out box, Rock 103 with some tunes, 50-60 motorcycles, wrenching contest, food and alot on onlookers - like me. It was a great night for a cruise.
