My Return – Drag Strip Memories 2014

I would like to thank my friends and fans for the enthusiatic reception I received at the Drag Strip Memories Show in Hamilton Ontario. Drag racing fans are truly committed to the sport as evidenced the support they have offered both at the show and on my website. I am encouraged that some of my experimental work I did on my race cars is still used in current racing competition. I am proud to be part of the sport of Canada’s Drag Racing Scene.

Enjoy all of the photos supplied by friends and fans that attended the show in Hamilton Ontario. With special thanks to Stacee and Bill for all their support during my racing career and to Mark Roelofs for the bang up job he did on the Challenger!!! And last but not least to my dearest friends Danny and Gary for making this happen.

    Great to see the return of a Canadian Drag Racing Pioneer. Also nice to see so many others from the same era enjoying some “bench racing”. Congrats to all… Sorry I was not there to see it in person..

    Hey John remember me and my brother Roland
    and Danny’s younger brother Gary,we use to live down the street from you in Bay Ridges on Poprad Ave.We used to come up and wash your cars. I saw your name in the Toronto Star July 12th and it brought back a lot of memories. Ask Paul if he remembers taking that pink coloured Challengerup Brock Rd to see how fast it was
    Take care

    John, I had the pleasure of annoncing at several drag strips and I must say that either on or off the track you were always on your game in Stock ,Super/Stock , Pro/Stock and AA/Fuel Flopper.You deserve all the accolades of a True Pro Racer and Awesome crowd pleaser. John you have my vote for the Can. Motorsports Hall of Fame, long overdue.

    I hope that we can connect soon John.

    Keep well!!
