I have been around the so-called "nostalgia" racing scene for a long time... I've seen all the good, the bad, and the ugly that can happen in the genre... Many years ago Drag Racing Underground and I helped N.E.T.O. (North East Timing Organization) get its footing with fans and opportunities from various track promoters... That was way back when "Tiny" was the group's dedicated president... I watched N.E.T.O. take its first baby steps at Island Dragway, Atco Raceway, Lebanon Valley Dragway, and of course Old Bridge Township Raceway Park... It takes a h*ck of a lot of blood, sweat & tears to have a successful nostalgia organization... When it works, it's a truly beautiful thing, when it doesn't work, uh, it can get really ugly, really fast... The East Coast Gassers are another nostalgia organization that I greatly admire and respect-- I've witnessed them grow and prosper into an incredibly impressive and respectable group of racers... A couple folks have recently told me about Steve LeSueur and the basic concept of the "Best Of Times Nostalgia Drag Racing Association", and have asked me to help promote their thing on DRU once they get some race dates established-- I was told that Steve LeSueur is a fellow of integrity and that there's quite a few racers who believe that the organization has a good chance of becoming a positive force to the eastern nostalgia racing scene... As long as the leader(s) of an organization are indeed honest, possess integrity, and are doing what they do for the "right reasons", then, and only then is there a realistic chance of experiencing any success... From what I've been told, the "Best of Times Nostalgia Drag Racing Association" appears to be getting off on the right foot... I wish them only the best....
