This is my son James Sanderson with his 62 BelAir and myself JIm Sanderson with the 64 Impala. Back in 1983 I was lucky enough to buy my first car, the 64 Impala in the photos and still have it today. After an engine change I wanted to make a pass at West Hampton just to see what the car could do. What was to be just one day ended up being 10 years of bracket racing. I was hooked. But kids came along and the track sadly closed. Never did I think I would race on Long Island again.
My Son James seems to be that “apple” and it didn’t fall far. He is naturally mechanical inclined can fix just about anything and just loves the Classic cars. So much so he picked up the 62 BelAir. How many 25 year olds do that today?
Then RTNS comes along. Not only did that provided the opportunity to race again on Long Island but side by side with my Son!
On September 25, 2022 We did just that! I raced my son. I personally cannot thank RTNS and all the people who worked so hard to make this a reality.
