When you are as old as some of us are and have been going to the races for almost 50 years....stories add up quick. The ones I had as a youngster still stick with me. Some of the cherished moments I have include meeting some of the legends of racing. Johnny Mackison...Bobby Hersh...Ray Tilley....Bob Brymesser...Leroy Felty...Johnny Grum..
Stories galore...most when I was just a kid.
Sitting in a diner booth with Leroy Felty getting harassed about being a Tilley fan.
Sitting in the Mackison / Tilley #1 at the McCoy garage.
Sitting in the Judges stand with Jack Gunn.
The rides to Selinsgrove in Duke Negleys GTO and Bobby Brymesser saying that the ride to the races was more exciting than being on the track.....Thanks Duke!
My first time at Port Royal...scared to death.
One of the best things ever was the internet and these message boards......MANY new friends have been made.....makes the racing that much better!
