His interview on the stage was typical Leroy also! He is a legend around these parts...and one of the last.

These guys had some opinions about the racers of their era. Most of these opinions are now long gone. They had no problem calling drivers out during victory lane interviews. Felty was probably the best.

When Zortman interviewed Bobby Hersh years ago....I told him to throw drivers names at him for reactions.....I would have loved to have heard the "off the record" comments. I know there were some.

I too thought Leroy was on the throttle last night.

A couple photos with Leroy in victory lane with the "Velvet Jet" would have been a nice touch.
