Stan puts his
"John Hancock"... his "Stan Ploski" on the beautiful work of art.
Unbelievable detail... Clark captures it all.
There's only one thing better than the summer night air at the fair....
... and that's when there's race cars there!
Fair is on through Sunday, August 29th - Come out and see the cars and stars of Flemington Speedway!
Note: This time of year I like to take a minute to thank Lenny Swider and Marty from The Flemington Department Store for coming up with the original "Flemington Reunion" in 2004. The "Reunion" was hosted the following year again at the Flemington Department Store, and the following year it was moved to the Elks Lodge next to the department store, where it was a combination Reunion & Collectable's event.
Feeling like the event was losing some of its "historical focus", John "Goop" Mondelo met with the people in charge of the Hunterdon County Fair (2007 or 2008?) and saw to it that Flemington Speedway became part of the annual Fair event. Wyatt Jacobus, Clint Bush and the rest of the 'Tri State Vintage Memorabilia group continued the efforts at the Fair (through 2008 & 2009), and now the "Flemington Reunion" which begun in 2004, now appears to have found a permanent home. With the Flemington Speedway Historical Society (FSHS) coming on board and the continued efforts of Wyatt, Clint, Bill Hanna, Mark Harrington and many, many others, the future of the yearly event looks solid.
