Rest in piece.

I met him a few times. He owned the marina right next door to my place in St Petes. He and his guys wrenched on my Tiger a few times and got me out of a few jams.

Camera man was a rumor, The camera was remote operated. The only injuries were to the hearts of everyone who loved Scott

[QUOTE=AIR TIME;2597788]. I just talked to my neighbor that drag races there and he said its not a good shut down area because of a road behind it, well build a bridge for the road so the shut down area can be longer if its that short of a shut down area they should close the track to cars over 200, or change the roadQUOTE]

In the middle to late 1980's, I raced many , many times at Englishtown. Of course my speeds were no where near as fast as a Fuel Funny car,( I was only going 145 mph through the traps ), the shut down of that track was no shorter than any other I have seen. In fact, out of all the local tracks I have visited and raced on, ( Maple Grove, Atco, Lebanon Valley, Island, Long Island) it is the longest. I agree that there is not enough room to stop a car from 330 mph, but thats any track. The entire system should be looked at and modified to prevent this from happening again. NHRA should get on the ball here. Nascar finally did after Dale SR .
