Ray Tilley Memorial

Post by High in the first turn » Mon May 28, 2012 11:27 am

Unfortunately the rains came before the racing began but the Tilley family got there early to see Ray's cars and greet his fans.

Here is Ray's grandson sitting in his Sprint Car

When I meet an oldtimer I ask. I know you didn't cheat but what did other guys do to cheat? Ray grinned and said about the bugs. The rules said the cars had to have clutches and starters. It didn't say they had to work.

Here's Lynn Paxton. I've never seen a driver that could work traffic like Paxton. Always good to see Lynn at Selinsgrove.

Have you hugged an oldtimer today?

The Bud Grimm Special in my opinion was 1 of the finest looking machines pre-vinyl graphics days. Bud would always stop at the gas staion below my house & fill the Ranchero up on Friday evenings heading to the Grove.

One sharp looking car!!!
