Greetings all,

I would like to explain where I have been the last 1.5 years.

Some of you may know I am no longer with Moroso Performance. I was laid off, July (2011), 6 months unemployed. This lay off also soured me a bit on the racing because while I understood Moroso position (business being real slow). I was the one out of work. And this is Nothing against Rick Moroso him self, He is a great guy and we still talk and he as helped me out several times, more than I can count. This is about the economy. When people are out of work they do not buy parts or race because they do not have the funds to. It is a cycle.

I am a Electronic tech, I got a Job (1-9-12) at Honeywell in Northford, CT (I use to work @ the same building 34 years ago when it was Picker as a Electronic tech fresh out of Connecticut school of electronics). I trouble shoot PC board(s) to component level all day long. Which I have a God given gift for. But I am making 2/3 of what I was making @ Moroso.

So no racing last year and a half. I have found a new hobby RC airplanes and the flying field is right behind Honeywell, So during the summer that is very nice, less than a ¼ mile drive to the field from work.


If the $$$ are there next year, Good lord willing I will be back at the 100’ drags At Waterford on Friday nights.


Still drive the GN to work from time to time. Yesterday the Power master pump was leaking bad, So…

I've been to the 100' race at waterford, i just don't get it, it's literally 2 sec of racing, i think it's meant for the lawn tractors or quads....not so much for cars. i still have a good time and $2.50 beers are reasonable compared to Lebanon Valley $5.00 beers!! I love when they do the trailer races at Waterford!!

Well, It also the only thing CT as to offer. The competition is just a fierce. I was 4th in the points in 2010.Plus I always have a great time and good group of people.

What class did you run in? I was in Comp.

I never raced at waterford, I spectate the circle track races but, I do go to Englishtown in NJ or Lebanon Valley in NY to race 1/4 mile....lots of fun. I would try Waterford but, it's to much of a tease...launch....2 sec later....stop or hit the wall on the turn of the circle track....LOL.....it's not for me, the Sat night circle races are expensive....$30 bucks....to much money, I go to lebanon Valley and it $10 with more races and better cars but, it's a 2hr drive and waterford is a 45 minute drive Milford, CT, so I go there often. CT definitely needs more tracks!!
