This is my first post, so I figure an introduction is in order before I start asking questions and gettin' randy...
I'm new to the board, but I grew up a few miles from The Grove in Dover, PA. My dad grew up on the old Gettysburg Pike and heard the track from the kitchen window on the farm every weekend they ran. As a kid, my best friend's dad was the flagman for years. He's still my best friend, even though I'm closer to Petaluma Speedway in California these days than Williams Grove. Ran around with A.E. Duffy's Super Late team before that class disappeared and one of my best memories at the track was hopping in the bed of the truck to push Kinser one night. Good times.
Nowadays, I publish my own magazine. Little bit of everything I think gearheads might like. I pretty much publish the stuff I dig and so far, enough people seem to share my taste in cars and girls and racing and bikes that it's working. Right now, I'm working on a feature on Kenny Weld. I saw a snapshot (I think it was on this board somewhere) of Kenny Weld's team in FL with Bob Stitley in the background. That shot got me interested in Weld again and now I'm looking for some people to talk to about him.
Have any stories you'd like to share with me? Any snapshots? I had the good fortune of meeting Kenny Johnson and getting a ton of great photos of Weld and his team from him, but I'd love to hear some great stories about this guy. I know there's no shortage.
Love to hear from you here on the board or hit me directly at email@example.com
Thanks, everyone and really looking forward to hearing from you,
