Default "Live From" D1 Numidia Dragway LODRS

Hello all,

The last time we had a division race at Numidia was 2004. Bobby DiMino bought Numidia back in 2006 I believe, and from what I here from the local racers, Bobby puts a on great weekly program. I did some web work back in the day for Bobby, and I can tell you he is a class act, and he treats the racers accordingly. Oh, and they also have a great concession stand, the food is awesome.

I like many others are happy to be back at Numidia, and as you can see from the photos its a very scenic track. Its not a fast track but it is a nice place to race. We will have a test session tomorrow starting out 12.

D1-TV live feed brought to you by Micro Strategies will be here this weekend.

On a sad note, Allen George passed away this morning. I was just talking to him on Saturday just before round 2 of Stock at the Virginia Nationals. He was such a nice man, very polite and he loved racing. Some may not have known him, but he has been racing for decades. He drove a Supercharged COPO. He told me he liked running the Factory Stock Showdown when he could, and was working to make the car more competitive. We had a Factory Stock Showdown race at the Atco Open and I was glad he got the win. I believe he was 78. Last photo is of Allen George at the Virginia Nationals.

Thanks for the info on Allen George. I am sorry that he's no longer with us. I met him only once in Div. 1 and he seemed like a really nice guy. I was impressed that he not only was still racing but in one of the fastest stock cars, a new COPO! My hat's off to him.

Love Numidia and glad to see Bob get a Divisional back. Love that track and have a good history with putting together a few big $$ .90 races up there. I hope to see a lot of racers come out and support the track but, I know it was always a struggle to get people to get up there because of the tough tow. I know when they used to have the D1 race there it used to drawl a lot of cars and a lot of D3 cars would use it as their out of Divisional Race. I know some people are mad because it's on top of Bristol but, so was the E-Town D1 race so I think we should be thanking Dave & D1 and the SRCA Reps who hooked it up to get a replacement for E_town instead of just going down to 6 races. See everyone tomorrow sometime.

I love the ride up to Numidia, well at least on my bike.

This is one of my favorite pics taken from one of the "Combo In The Hills" a number of years ago.

so tired of hearing the tough tow excuse.

it's the year 2018, buy a diesel pickup, toter or MH and stop with the excuses.

Keep in mind that not everybody can afford a modern toter, MH or high powered tow vehicle. I personally towed with a '94 Chevy dually for 15 years. It did a good job most of the time, but it's 454 TBI was a dog in the hills and I wouldn't even attempted to pull my rig up mountainous areas, but it was what I could afford at the time. I was fortunate enough to recently replace it with a Chevy Duramax dually that could take me to the Mile Highs if I had the inclination. Sorry for going off of the subject.

No toter, no MH here.

My trailer loaded is over 14,000 lbs. and the hills my diesel pickup easily pulls this tag trailer up on the way to Numidia pale in comparison to the hills it also easily pulls it enroute to Bristol.
