No Limit Motorsports & L.I. Needs a Drag Strip: Bridging the gap BBQ
Recently, as in Sunday October 1st, 2017…okay maybe not so recent, but it’s only 11 days ago, jeez, No Limit Motorsport, of Medford, New York, hosted a BBQ for fellow car nuts, Long Island Needs a Drag Strip or LINADS as we will affectionately refer to them. But, before we get into it, we already know what’s going through your mind “oh great, another blog about some car meet/bbq, so what and who cares?” and you know something, in most cases, you’d be right. However, this BBQ is extremely important, monumental even. It will forever go down in the history of domestic vs. import, muscle vs. exotic, Ford vs. Chevy, Subaru vs. Evo…I think you get the point, as a symbolic gesture delineating the unification of bad ass cars and those that love them!
To give a little context for those of you that don’t know, LINADS was started approximately a little over a year ago, by a local Long Island racing family, John Cozzali, his wife Kathy, and step-son John Consoli. In a recent discussion with John Consoli, while attending their weekly Tuesday night meet at Jesus is Lord Church, located on North Ocean Ave just south of the Long Island Expressway, John said that LINADS is the birth child of his step-father’s frustration of sitting in traffic to and from race tracks in other states. While begrudgingly sitting in traffic, Mr. Cozzali had an epiphany to bring a drag strip back to Long Island, and as the saying goes “the rest is history”.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get back to why this BBQ/meet, is so important. In a world full of hate and division it is incredible to see two groups of likeminded people with such passion and love, so dedicated to bridging the gaps that isolate and alienate so many of us. Who would have known that something so simple as unifying the different categories of cars (muscle, import, exotic, domestic) could have such a prolific impact on not only the car community, but the local communities themselves! With the smell of fresh burgers in the air, the sun glistening off the cars, it was truly great seeing friends and families enjoying the event.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the members of Long Island Needs a Dragstrip, all of our staff and loyal customers, but most importantly, those that continue to bridge the gap. Until next time, have a safe and warm winter, we look forward to seeing you in the spring!
As seen in the below pictures & video below, all categories of cars were well represented at this beautiful and amazing day.
