I’m the founder of an organization called Long Island Needs a Dragstrip.

I started my group three months ago, and it has more than 12,000 members on Facebook. I want to give the public a safe place to race instead of doing it on the streets, and to educate and bring awareness to people about safe racing. I also want to bring the economic benefits of racing back to Long Island [“Missing the golden era of Long Island racing,” Just Sayin’, Sept. 24].
