A Piece of Youngstown History to Make Youngstown History... Last weekend we had the honor to revisit Jim & Toni Amey's 'Idora Park Experience' Museum. During our tour, the Amey's gave us a rare Youngstown good luck charm for our NHRA Top Dragster straight from the personal collection of one of the original owners of Idora Park, Lenny Cavalier. Encased in this key tag is an original early 1900s admission ticket from the historic Idora Park depicting our NHRA competition number... We can't thank the Amey's enough for the opportunity to carry on Youngstown history through our racing efforts on the NHRA circuit!
