64 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 26 - May 2, 1996 From The Ca Gazette's Traveler Series* Drag-racing veterans Kenny Abbott (1) and Ken Morley are off to a strong beginning of the 1996 racing season in their Roadhouse Steak Joint.sponsored Super Comp dragster. Morley and Abbott off to strong start in 1996 dragster racing at Delmar Three weeks into the 1996 rac- ing season, the Morley's Racing Super Comp dragster, sponsored by The Roadhouse Steak Joint, has posted three runner-up finishes at the U.S. 13 Dragway in Delmar. "We're off to a strong start," said Morley who lives in Lewes and is manager of contractor sales at Lowe's. "Having the Roadhouse Steak Joint as an exclusive sponsor this year has enabled our race team to advance to a higher level," said Morley. "It takes a lot of great ef- fort by many people to put a drag- ster on the track that exceeds 150 mph over the quarter mile - in less than nine seconds. And having the support of sponsors like the Road- house helps cover the high cost of competitive racing." Another factor in the success of the Morley dragster this year is the addition of chassis builder Kenny Abbott out of AllStar Chassis in Vienna, Md. Abbott is a seasoned veteran of the sport of drag racing and is sharing some of the driving responsibilities with Morley. Racing at Delmar runs Sundays in May and Friday nights in June. Ken Morley holds his dragster at the starting line of the U.S. 13 Dragway in Delmar. Outdoors Continued from page 63 Henlopen State Park around the Navy Jetty. Mackerel madness There are at least some macker- el, usually a true harbinger of the start of fishing season, being caught. Fisherman's Wharf re- ports picking up some fish last weekend. There are also some limit catch- es of tautog being made on wrecks. But Kelly Racz reminds people that the spring tautog fish- ermen has to abide by different creel limits because of the spawn- ing season for the fish. Right now, the limit is three fish with a 15 inch minimum size in effect. Here's a bit of good news. Charles Lesser of the Division of Fish and Wildlife says Delaware expects flounder fishing to pick up this year. More importantly for local fishermen, Lesser said that efforts by the Atlantic States Ma- rine Fisheries Commission, to re- duce weakfish or trout catches are being delayed. Lesser said those restrictions are now being scaled back somewhat and Delaware does not expect any changes in the current recreational limit for the fish before 1998. Shown with their Cape Gazettes at the Senior Olympics are (l-r) Jim Allen, Pasquale "Pat n Remedio of Cape Shores, Lewes; AI Marshall, Pete Olivero, Pete Buongiovanni, John Montgomery, Jack Craig and John Hopkins. They sharpened their mental acuity with the Cape Gazette This team of Senior Olympians including Pat Remedio of Cape Shores in Lewes and Wilmington calls itself the Delaware Gold and competes in a variety of volleyball tournaments for contestants over 55 years old. Its members traveled to San Antonio in Texas in 1995 to compete in the national Senior OIympics. The team worked hard at winning its contests. Volleyball requires tremendous team- work, finely honed physical character, and alert minds prepared to seize each and every opportunity to fire a shot into the heart of their opponents' weaknesses. Because of that rare combination of qualities needed to win, members of the Delaware Gold team packed Cape Gazettes in their duffles to help keep their minds sharp between sets. And it's not only volleyball players who find their minds sharpened by the Cape Gazette. People from all walks and jumps of life make the Cape Gazette a regular part of their routines. Some have even reported a noticeable increase in their total number of brain cells, though this is unverified. I State ....
