Double MARRS History Day
Adding to the busy and exciting Labor DayDouble MARRS weekend at
Summit Point will be a display of the Washington DC Region's rich
history. Steve Lloyd, the Regional Historian, aided by Ron Polimeni,
Phil Charlwood and other members of his History Committee, will have
a booth set up where interested racing enthusiasts can view
slideshows and videos of our Region's racing at Hagerstown Municipal
Airport, Marlboro Motor Speedway, Reading Airport and other venues.
There will also be Regional memorabilia in the form of early Sports
Car and Straightpipes (as far back as 1952!), Lavender Hill Mob
materials, and more.
Plan to stop by and share the history of our Region and its
deservingly proud place in the history of sports cars in the USA.
The history display will only be at the Double MARRS for one of the
three days that weekend; the exact day has yet to be determined as we
go to press. However, there will be flyers at the track announcing
the exact date that weekend.
Please note, this is open to anyone who can walk/drive into the
paddock, but it does not include admission to Summit Point Raceway
itself. In other words, you'd either need a pass or a paid admission

- Aloha Steve:
Dave Nicholas here. Although I rarely say much on the Marlboro site, I do keep up with things and have helped with photos every once in a while. For your history day, I have shots from Marlboro and Reading if you still need some. I did make it to Hagerstown once, but those negatives are gone forever.
Please write me at davnik6@... and let me know what you might need. Most I have are from early to mid 60's.
