Dover day 3

Long day! And hot! Today I got to the display area to swap stuff with Vern, scored an awesome PTO from  him. Then on to the track run! About 94 of us signed up for the run and I think all 94 showed. Went around the track many times and got MPH up to 5o MPH. Then the track historian gave us some stats on the track and we watched a DVD about the history of NASCAR at Dover.

Later we had the STF dinner and two folks, husband and wife with the last name of STUDEBAKER attended. He always knew he was related to the Studebaker brand but recently he did some research. What he found out was that his wife was actually closer related to the Studebaker brothers than he was!! Because we did not get a group picture, we all decided to take one in  the morning in front of Dover Downs.
