Talk about the good old days. Really brings back memories. The people on the back side of the track parked on the terraced hill and flashed their lights for the winners. One day in Butler it was pouring as my dad and I decided to go to Blanket Hill. My mom said you can't be serious. My dad and I said the announcer says it never rains at Blanket Hill. We drove over and enjoyed another racing program. It always seemed to me Linder and Lundy had the same plan. Win it on the first lap. And opening day each year had a long line waiting on 422 to turn into the track. Still often see Dave Lundy at Lernerville and even saw him last year in Florida. Another of those great racers I was fortunate enough to see race over the past fifty some years. Dickson in the Long Brother's Trevis, Yip smoking the cigar, Dale Johnson in the Black 7, Andy Phillips lifting that left front wheel , the Rice 8, 28, 38. Like I said, talk about the good old days.
