Nice shots!! :thumbright:
I haven't been there in years and it's only about 45 minutes from my house.
If you come up Darren let me know.

It is quite a scene up there, those folks from Lehighton are really a Crazy Bunch you gotta sit in the stands and just take it all in
we raced there many years ago it is one tough little track you never have a second to rest you are constantly turning left, and somebody always
has a bumper right on you, there was only one tougher Bull Ring and that was Dorney Park Speedway that place was tight flat and fast
put 20 55 chevys on that track hold on theres going to be some serious banging.

Thank You Scott for the memories. I spent many a saturdays there. There was action everywhere at Dorney Park probably the best asphalt track I've been to. :thumbright:

It make me so mad everytime I think of them closing the park,
When I saw that photo of the front gate it was like 1973 all over again,
It was by far the wildest racing around not to mention you sat right on top of the track,
Rick do you remember walking from the backstretch to the concession area? you were literally on the track,
no mufflers open headers. Dam that was fun. How about Paul the flying farmer Bausher passing the whole field on the outside,
or watching the sportsmans left front never touch the track, Freddie hamm, Charlie Gilmore, Mike & Dave Kelly, Tony Hirshmann, George Wambold. Doug Hoffman,
How about Dave Cicons Brother I can't remember his name but the guy never ever raced anything goes out and wins on the first try at
Dorney of all places, How about all of those cowbells ringing when some favorites came out.After all of that after the races you went right
into the park for free. The old half mile at Nazareth I miss alot too I won't even go into names that ran that place.

This could go on for awhile. Rick Mc Neil silver and black #7 56 chevy, the black and white 85 55 chev late model, preston henry, Jack :thumbright: and Roger Hefelfinger, Buzzy Rabinold (painted my chevelle), Ken Erney, Ed little orange 23 sportsman he was another one who was hooked up there, ??? Santee, Dale Creyer, Hal Renninger. Remember the sportsman that went part way though the turn 3 fense. Me and the X use to sit up top in turn 3, watch'um come down the back streach. you could spend a day stopping at all the race shops in the Danielsville, Walnutport, Palmerton area. Man I miss that place. and yes watch the races then go ride the yellow roller coaster and wild mouse, among other rides. When I lived at my mom's house on south side of the parkway you could sit out and listen to the races, you could tell when the exhaust was facing and away from her house.

Yes I was there one night when a sportsman got up in the stands,
Darrel Amey turn three I don't think I spelled it right he wasn't the only one that did it.
Remember Dennis and Randy Baily, Crazy Morris and Leon Borger Morris was fresh out of Viet Nam
and was a maniac, used to wreck his car and fix the tie rods before the tow truck could
get him towed away, Butch Csonka drove a 92 late model you could see the glow from the
cigar he was smoking while wheeling the purple Broadway speed shop chevrolet.
I guess were showing our age here brother.

You got that right on the age :thumbright: Broadway speed shop, how could I forget, Ed Hoffman bought the late model from them.
I forgot all about Butch, he was one wild guy!! I use to be in a garage with some other guys that was right across the street from his body shop down at the bottom of Lehigh St..

remember the night andy belmont cleared the first turn fence and landed on rt 191........and all the people that scattered from their "reserved seats" in the first turn trees?
watchin that car disappear thru the corregated steel fence, all i could think was "this isnt gonna be good?"

or the "final race" getting rained out and having to do it all over again a couple weeks later....

Andy wasn't the only one to go out there, I think a street stock went out too,
Those were some great racing years, Of course Buzzie, Rags Carter, Frank Schnider,too many to list.
How about the flamed 99 of Bob Malzon I know i'm spelling these wrong :twisted:
There was so many great ones at Nazareth and Reading and flemington too. all gone.

the scary part about leaving thru the first turn wall was not only did they end up in 191 but it was a pretty sizable drop thru the trees before they hit the highway....that one was on the cover of AARN.
