Fall Havana

Time has really flown by, with this being the last race of our 2015 season. We basically missed several of our first races this spring,
due to weather conditions. We had some really great races in the later part of the season. The Fall Nostalgia race at Central Illinois
Dragway in Havana, Ill was our last event of the the year.
On Friday afternoon the Huffmans arrived followed by Ken Kapper and Roger Brown and later in the evening Jesse James. Ken and Bryan
were able to make 3 test passes. Later in the evening Bill Eveland came in and made a couple of passes.

On Saturday the rest of the group started arriving. The group included, Rob Rothweiller, Jack Kaylor , the Blaseys, Rod Urish, Joe and Brendan Beach, Ted Beach and a prospective member Dave Walters.
We made two time runs during the day. The main program started at 6pm. We made two runs during the main program. We made parade
laps past the stands in the evening. Everyone in the stands waved and cheered for us. They made us feel greatly appreciated.
We had our pot luck meal before the evening program. It was Roger Brown’s last race of his career. In attendance was his wife and daughter and grand daughter. We presented him with one of our old banners. Everyone in attendance signed it. We also presented him with a special cake and ice cream. Roger was a good member and we hope to see him at the race track spectating. We are going to miss his humor and his Anglia. The weather was terrific and we all had an exceptional time at this event. We all had great and quick runs to end our season. Later in the evening some of us had a camp fire and sat around and enjoyed the comrade.

We are looking forward to a great season next year.

Chairman Bryan Huffman
