  2. not racing related

    READ about a javelina in the news sorta same deal as babba . FROM 1986..babba was a family pet the state took away from buddy and patsy thorne .babba was very friendly ate ice cream cake and mainly people food .I knew the thornes well and babba the pig .my dad younger brother and sister lived fence to fence with the thornes and babba … my dad was a wielder and always had pipe right against the fence , one day we needed some pipe for Robert driggers race car I took him with me, he did not know babba was next door no clue ,so I thought I would have a little fun I positioned Robert facing away from the fence as he looked for what was needed .babba walked up against the fence and if he did not know you he would take his natural alert stance hair standing up tusk showing and then snorting Robert heard that strange sound and turned face to face with babba he screamed so loud and jumped so high I thought he had a heart attack .I have tears from laughing as I type this .he had to make a fast run to clear his pants wasn't good .but funny as hell .WHAT WASNT FUNNY the game warden was called after 10 years of babba living there ..and many of you should remember it became a popular news item all over the world .. I moved to leon valley in sa just as that was going on and got a shock walking into circle k .and finding every one knew of this ..I handed out where is babba stickers a few days later and later on I am mad too babba stickers ...the thornes never gave up looking for babba and when I drive by the house I think of those two fine people never getting the chance to see him again I know buddy died I dont know about patsy ..I do know many tears for years pasty cried over this .. you know I missed babba too.

  6. Sell out crowd at New Smyrna on Monday!

    nascar helped kill the Saturday night short tracks ..now they want to help glad to see they woke up ..nascar future is Saturday night local tracks ..
  7. Ford and Hailie Deegan

    KEEP THINKING THAT I dont think nick would even agree with that .. some of cars he worked with didnt have the money you think it takes to win .. we darn near pulled off a championship in 20 17 . with a junk car .. I won many races in my racing days by out smarting and out running money cars cuz I sure as heck didnt have money ….I even beat most of them with their hand me downs .junk stuff .I just had to work harder .. so dont cheapen low budget teams with that attitude …… . now does money help .lol I wont turn it down .but all the money in the world would not make you a winner . I takes a lot more than that . buy a race team with unlimited budget with out the talent and see just were you go .. I know nick may agree I think the fastest race winner year after year was rick rapp .. poor boy but kicker on the track ..I learned from him it can be done .

  11. Ford and Hailie Deegan

    BUDMAN I wont question where she came from of how she got wealthy so much lol.. I am not saying Danica wasn't good behind the wheel ..nascar brought her in to bring the everyday lady into racing get them interested .. and it worked to a point .but what it did do is give your old worn out eyes some eye candy .it helped nascar more in that sense with the men .. , but in all reality she could not really handle a stock car .that takes years to learn .she could not tell the team just what the car was doing where she could be helped …….nascar did get what they wanted . Danica got rich ....but to a racing fan like me where talent behind the wheel means more to me than a perfect body .nice combed hair and clean face .and great on tv she didnt impress me ...and neither do the male racers .. talent behind the wheel .. that makes a racer . looks is one small reason nascar lost a little luster …looks never won a race ..the talent inside did .
  12. Ford and Hailie Deegan

    you can bet he was looking in the mirror wondering where did she come from she is a rookie ..she isnt Danica for you bud she makes Danica look like a rookie ..Danica was just a gimmick .she little lady is for real .

    WELL heck its that time of the year again.. my wife reminded me the other day only four days till Christmas I need to shop ..boring .but I made myself get up today and get it all done ...I THINK .. lucky for me I get a list from her and makes it easy . one stop shopping and done in less than an hour .. wahoo …… so with that next week will be 365 days gone by and I will be shopping again maybe next time it will take ten minutes of my lazy day so I can go back and take snooze .all that walking and waiting in line just wears you out .FIRST IN LINE AND OUT IN 2 . now if she would just make my home made family secret 100 year old recipe chocolate pie I would have deserved it for my venture out this morning … yum yum .. …. …. I know you guys dont want to hear my sad stories IT IS SO DEPRESSING .. so with that .. YOU ALL HAVE A VERY FINE SAFE WONDERFULL CHRISTMAS AND SAFE NEW YEARS .. THAT INCLUDES YOU NICK AND BUDMAN .CANT FORGET THE OLD GUYS
  22. Lawrence on RUSS

    I SORTA GREW up with Lawrence lived near each other . he was just a tad older . his dad james was one of my first and favorite drivers and enjoy talking with him from time to time .. not enough words to describe this family .. .. Joshua raced against marcus back at cc in the pures .. he and Joshua would battle it out and one time they got together while Joshua was leading .. marcus backed off and let Joshua have his position back . that told me how respectful marcus is .. following his dads footsteps .anyway the next race or two Joshua broke a trans .we did NOT have the money to have a new one rebuilt ut saved and pushed the pennies to go ask Lawrence how much he charged . he said the price and Joshua left knowing we didnt have that much yet …. sometime after Joshua left something hit Lawrence between the eyes I guess . he asked who was that someone said Joshua .. not having a phone number he tried to find Joshua to help him out . he saw that Joshua didnt go after marcus for hitting him I suppose it impressed him something like that . Joshua left an impression as marcus left one on me ….well Joshua went back a week or so later once we had the money and found a trans that had been ready sitting waiting for him .. like I said there are not enough words to describe this family … …. I suppose to pick one FANTASTIC …….. IF YOU HAVENT BEEN TO HIS GO CART RACES YOU ARE MISSING OUT BIG TIME .. .. …
