My first sprint car experience was at Grandview Speedway around 1985.
Always the Sunday night show with the URC Sprints and the midgets.
What great shows they were with some big name racers.
Well...for me they were big names like Dave Kelley and Glenn Fitcharles (SP).
And in the midgets it was Johnny and Nick and many more of course.
Midgets were so cool with all the different motors competing against each other.
Loved Fred Rahmer in the R-10 modified. Out of all the cars he drove, I liked the Rio Brothers R-10 the best.
So I've been hooked since 1985.
My grandfather had a junkyard in Limerick and all these people would come in and buy all these junked up cars and called them race cars. I thought these people were nuts...buying cars that were no good anymore, didn't run and people called them race cars.
So funny...people paid good money for cars that my grandfather got for free...and this was after I shot up the windows and headlights with a BB gun.
