Last Drag Race Tech Ever - Aug. 8, 2004
" Another aspect of my youth gone. By
now, at age 60, you'd think I'd be beyond
my eyes getting moist over such things!
"Thanks for the memories".

Last Drag Tech Ever - Aug 8, 2004 - 2
I wish to thank all the staff and racers at Carlsbad Raceway
for providing a great place to race and meet fellow drag racers.  When
business would take me to your side of the country I would head to
Carlsbad with whatever rental car I could find and spend a wonderful day
with all of you.  I even met people there from my home state of Maine.

I will miss Carlsbad and the people I have met there over the years.  
It is a shame to lose such a valuable community asset as a dragstrip and
a shame to lose part of the history of the sport.  Perhaps someday in
the future there will be a new dragstrip in Southern California.  Thank
you all for the good times and good competition.  ---Ted Hunter
