Sandy and I and my cousin plan to attend. I'm planning to spend time in the pits. For me the wrenches flying and racers helping each other is living large. I'm not a hot rodder but I have pitched in back in the day and helped.
Back in the day Daddy took me to dirt track racing South Jersey. Pitman I think. The smell of caster oil sure loosened me up. The announcer asked if any racer had a spare 39 Hudson tranny. I was stunned!! A few minutes later, they announced the some one had given a tranny to the sick car. I asked Daddy why? " Son, they fight on the track, but they help each other in the pits." I will never forget that advice and serve to help others..

TROGin was bodacious.com!!! Huge crowd, great morning weather Saturday. Just as we left a heavy fog and down pour visited the site. I was worrified Sarah would get her checkered flag wet. No reports on the news about such, however. Pits were full of great rods. Car show had about 67 cars. We did not get back to the Sunday races. (Racers paid $200 for two goes down the quarter-mile beach track.) Bruce got us great spots to view the cars are they stacked up and then threw sand on the off track return. After a bit we walked the length of the viewing berm and peaked over heads to see the race from various spots. Then a view of the starting area, pits and car show. We headed home as the storm threatened and were back in Ocean City soon. Sunday we gave the OC boardwalk a walk. Fun, as this is very early in the season, so the kids working the booths were all shined up,with new logo shirts and clean faces and aprons. All booths were freshly painted. Especially funny were the newbies’ cheerful faces as they talked with their coworkers trying to set themselves up for the summer. Sandy and my cousin Pru cleared their bucket lists of the fab TROG event. We enjoyed a super seafood dinner Saturday evening!!!

Ran my car #71. Huge crowd and just a little rain. Good time, but a couple of bad motorcycle accidents. The racers get faster every year. Some were obviously running too fast for the conditions. State Police shut it down a little early on Saturday because of one of the accidents. I also heard that they barred racers that were running alcohol and race fuel in violation of the stated rules.

There was a racer there with a 4 cyl PAL dohc engine. I don't know Model T's at all, but it didn't look like it was an A conversion. Was it Model T based? I tried the Google with no results.
