If you are looking for further information on the paved track at Brighton or even Riverview in Trenton I would recommend contacting Shelley Gregory. She is a local real estate agent. I was told she has a bunch of stuff from both tracks having raced there herself. The Gregory family has been racing the local tracks as long as we've had tracks in the area. We actually have three third generation Gregory's running at Brighton right now. I noticed that you were also looking for info on Riverview speedway, I would recommend contacting either Shelley or Cliff Stillman of Stillman motors in Trenton. He owned Riverview Speedway.

Can you e-mail me any contact info for the Gregories or the Stillmans?

When I get a  chance I will talk to Huck Flindall, the announcer at Brighton. He raced there in the paved track days. I met him at the media day but didn't have time to get into a detailed discussion.

I'll do some checking and see what I can find. Talk to Huck though, he's full of great stories.

LOL. I was waiting for you to give me trouble for not saying "Hi". I'm not sure if I'll be there this weekend or not. I may go to Brockville for the SOS. I'll try to find you during intermission the next time I'm there.

Hi, A lot of the tracks seem to be bneedld in with other tracks. Underneath Din Daa Daa, I can hear Love Tempo by Quando Quango, after which there's a tiny snatch of the guitar from A Certain Ratio's version of Shack Up. The tune at about 1:40 is some Frankie Bones thing from about '88, but I can't remember the title. At 2:00, it's Talking With Myself by Electribe 101 with a break underneath it. At 2:17 the song is Techno Trance by D-Shake, and the reggae tune at the end is Silly Games by Janet Kay. I recognise a couple more, but I can't remember artists, names, etc.
