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.....

Welcome to DragList, Mitch! That is one great post you made. Barb visits here regularly and I know your contacting her will make her and us very happy. There was only one D.A. Santucci and everyone who knew him said the same kind of things you did about him. Thanks for joining! WC1

That's very nice, Mitch, thanks for writing those words about D A Santucci... Barb is one of my favorite gals and she is still active in the Nostalgia Funny Car scene, especially at E'Town's yearly Nostalgia Summernationals/Funny Car Reunion-- I see Barb at the event every year and it's a pleasure-- Barb is a good person... We don't forget individuals like D A Santucci, we all know that D A and his team were a class act who brought a lot to the sport... You've done a warm gesture by offering up your memorial tribute to D A Santucci... Diana
THE MOST READ FEMALE BLOGGER ON THE DRAG RACING INTERNET. THANKS TO YOU. I LOVE Y'ALL FOR THAT!
