JA BA from VA now in PA, How about a happy note on DA from PA., when he won at Indy in the mid-'60's and choke on his chewing gum. Did he ever tell you the story? I think the youngin' here would love to hear about it. Cheer up, better days are coming.
May GOD Bless YOU & the USA!

In the words of Bob Lagana Sr. as stated to me , D.A was simply " the best! "
God Bless his family and his memory.

Thanks, Mitch. He was great but for me, he lives on in his partner Barb, who has become such an integral part of the draglist.com family. I'm closer to DA through Barb than I ever was when he was with us. bp

Subject: Memorial Tribute to D A Santucci
Hello Draglink Super Crew,,,,I joined your web-site in an attempt to send an
e-mail to Barb Santucci....Nothing has been sent to me as far as an
activation word or number .......,She & her husband , Dominic A Santucci,
were friends of mine and I was honored and priviledged enough to crew for
him in the last couple of DA's racing years...Along with another mutual
friend , Frank Wilczynski , "SKI", we followed "DA" to various NHRA ,IHRA
,and other race events..What a wonderful time and also what a "dreamlike "
opportunity to be there on the starting line along side that "fire breathing
/ nitro burning monster",,,,and "DA" and the crew....Incredible memories
!!!! Many people were surprised at the professionalism , quality car prep,
expert driver times and his skill,,that was type of guy he was,,,but many
never got to see the gentle personal side of "DA",,,, he was one nice man !
In a way, that is why I contact you now , Dominic A. Santucci passed away
Dec 12, 2002 and I want to tell him and Barb that "he's remembered often and
missed." Respectfully, Mitch Abraham PS: You have my permission to 'fwd.
this to Barb.....
