Fitchburg Municipal Airport will be heavy with nostalgia and the smell of burnt rubber Saturday when it hosts the 2013 Orange Drag Strip Reunion event.

What a nice story and what a great event! I was especially moved about the comment that this is a family event and that no alcohol would be allowed.

All too often these days, automotive events take place at a venue that includes alcohol. Some of these establishments have even gone so far as to claim that they are running a family event; but it is typically not the case. Not to mention the bone headed idea of mixing alcohol with the operation of high powered vehicles. Needless to say, it lacks common sense. And, to make a bad situation worse, some of these establishments even get a free pass from the local Police Department; due to who is running the event.

To read a story about a real live family event, that is not getting some special free pass from anyone, is heartwarming indeed. Three cheers!

It's a fun event but then a participant on a motorcycle crashed because he ran out of room to slow down. He was lifeflighted. Then there was a lawsuit because the airport was not long enough for the racers to slow down and the proper safety barriers were not in place.

I guess that the legal repercussions from what you have described were low enough that the Airport is doing it all again.

Hey, speaking of crashes at an automotive event, didn't someone a couple of years back who was leaving one of JR's Pubs Cruise Nights smash into an iron fence, a mear 50 or so yards away from the pub; after they left the pub in typical fashion: tires screeching and car veering back and forth on a public way? I heard that the operator has downed a few pops at JR's before his untimely car crash.

I heard that crash into the fence was a drunk kid without a license. Oh wait that happens in Fitchburg every night with or without a car show.

And isn't it also true that your wife has decided to go lesbian since you're not much of a man? I'm pretty sure that's what we heard. Well, that she had banged her way through most of your friends but from what is known you had a pretty good idea something fishy was going on anyway. But yeah, word is that your wife is a carpet muncher.

The term you're looking for is "badge bunny". And yes, she has a predilection for the boys in blue. Lets just say she's hosted more Policeman's balls than the Sheraton Four Points.
Oh boy
