ESPN rides with AJ Nocita and The Good Neighbor Pharmacy Chevelle

Last Thursday afternoon, The Good Neighbor Pharmacy Chevelle was carrying a little extra weight down the 1/8 mile at the Irwindale Dragstrip. ESPN had a camera and reporting crew out at the track to do a feature on illegal street racing and the alternatives that are available to kids today. Street racing claims the lives of countless innocent people each year. Many dragstrips around the country put on what are called "test and tune" nights so that the young people will have a safe and legal place to race. We've been involved with many of these programs. Anytime we have a chance to participate with a group speaking out against street racing, we're happy to help. We weren't given any airing info, but we'll let you know dates and times when they're given to us.

This coming Thursday, August 28th, Dalcorp Racing/AREA 51, along with WR Racing and The Finish Line will be hosting the weekly meeting of Car Night. We host this event once a year and it always turns out to be one of the largest and most enjoyable events that we do. There's an eclectic gathering of people and cars with lots of food, fun and rock n' roll. As an added attraction this year, we'll be firing up Bob Hansen's nostalgia top fuel dragster and shooting nitro flames 8 feet in the air! (Our neighbors love us!) Things start cranking up around 5:00, so stop by if you can and say hi.
