That is fantastic stuff Bill! I hope everyone gets to meet Chad at one point, because there is no more sincere person in the pit area, I guarantee that! He deserves everything good that happens to him and the team!

Wisdom WRT. Chad is one of the best dudes in the pits you'll ever have the opportunity to talk to. His family and crew are wonderful, and always friendly, good night or bad. Best of luck for the remainder of 2008!!

Nice job Booger...............sorry to see that you are no longer the Master of Your Own Domain. :pinkelephant:

.."what the heck is that brown ring around my neck.. He looks at me and goes, 'that's your @$$ hole - remember when you were inverted, and hit the ground, yeah, that's what happens'."... :perfect:
I just spit my drink on the monitor! Great stuff there!

The Criswell's have always been a class act!

Outstanding job Bill. Very entertaining read. Chad is a pretty level headed guy. I remember talking to him at Hill Valley Speedway back when he was going through a string of popped 600cc motors in the Micro and he still was pretty happy because he was still racing. That's the kind of spirit you like to see in this sport. :clap:

Always been impressed with the young man. He has been part of the chili-cookoff from the start, including being a chili judge (proof of his bravery and personal courage). A 358 driver supporting a fan organized event to benefit 410 drivers...................says a lot about Mr. Criswell. Captured the night he won on video. The VL shots with his family, especially Grandpa, is very poignant, and one of my favorites.

Nice job 420! .....keep 'em coming Bildo!

Awesome read!!!! I think Todd will agree with me in saying that Chad is one of the nicest drivers you could ever help out. We have a blast week in and week out whether we have a good night or just a so so night. I can say that as long as Chad is racing, I'll be more than happy to be on the crew!! :thumbleft: :thumbleft: :thumbleft:
