  8. MY FIRST AND ONLY race tps ever on this track was the last race there . had a very fast car with no driver lol .turn three and four are I could not get used to . one and two I was fastest there . . I loved the bump car did not bother the car and used to my advantage . .did not do to bad seeing I had a lean out on the carb during the race and instead of taking a chance to burn a piston give Lalo and Sergio a run .I backed if off and finished third after starting forth ..so not to bad for a first timer on this track .I always wanted to turn a lap on the track and thanks to my teammates and car owner I got a chance to live a dream ..I will never forget the win we had in tps in 06 and my son winning four or five races and getting that coveted home made out of the stands trophy . Joshua of the 30 plus trophies that one stands alone his baby … Lorraine scoring for nick when Joshua was about five years old with kim .meeting Clifford Alison and many more memories I will enjoy ..sad ..all good things to come and end .but memories last for ever .

  11. well sorta like mad at you for saving me .lol you know lieutenant dan was mad at gump... .. WOW THAT was way too close for comfort A couple of broke legs were not on my list . FOLKS budman is a hero ……… I was looking both ways just not down at that level ..you were there … had another close call at sts a couple of years ago .had lisa not screamed at me I would have been in a lot bigger problem ...either not alive or not walking ever again ..someone used the golf cart lisa was on to hold a very heavy four wheeler up on the bank in turn four .when she moved it set the four wheeler on its way dont the bank towards another parked golf cart ..I was in between .. as I turned out of its way it hit my right arm and crashed into that other cart .others were lucky that cart was there ..pits were full of poeple just standing around ….so she is a hero as well ….. some times I wished I took pictures .

    The number 12 pinto I bought from david in 1989 ..fast car two cc championships with david driving it . david blew up every time he raced there ..1991 I loaned the same car to irene wilky under number 25 .she finished the race somewhere 14th or so after being spun by 27 bill on the last lap I think she was in the top 8 at that point .. I would have raced that October race in the car but momma to be would not let me go seeing Joshua was just about to come in to this world …. looking at the first pic of the 12 car .looked like19 85 or19 86 year .car was new .

Spent many years knowing this fine lady and true racers friend .she could drive the wheels off a racer .fearless lady many have seen her race many types of cars at cc speedway including train racing .my wife scored for her and don for many years at cc speedway .. I think it was 1969 when she and don were married at cc speedway ..riding around the track with the kids in chopped top I believe in a ford galaxy 500 I will never forget that night ……...she was a tough lady and would go toe to toe with you on any subject and was respected for it .I know I respected her ..I have missed visiting with her she always had an educational word lol she never turned her back on you .

I said dont know yet .but I can tell you 25 felt really good ..now 13 years later I had to move the felt better .47 felt great ….. now if nick could slow down and wait for me to catch up to him we both can tell you 63 felt great .sorry by the time I catch nick .you would have already felt 63 ..

    Heck of a dog ..my grandparents had dog just like this dog in the late 60s ..she had the same energy attitude and love this dog has for everyone around her .her name was cassy . she would go dove hunting with me and spent time with us on the shrimp boat ..always wanting to go with anyone of the family who would take her …. I can see why you miss sailor and did not realize till I watched the video that cassy .sailor and this dog all looked so much alike and acted so much the same way ..they are very smart dogs ..

    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.
  21. I left my autograph a few times all the way around that track ...even tried racing on my roof . came up three laps and one turn short of winning the race ….I manage to leave a 193 foot skid mark from exit of turn two to turn three .burned a hole right through my roof .funny how the 14 who flipped me look like 41 . with an upside down view ..I often thought once you rub the wall that is as far as you can go .the limit ...and dont go pass that limit .
  22. Rest in Peace, Carol Yocum

I told jesse this track of all tracks we want to travel too .is number one … I have not missed the travel time after kyle shut down ..staying home and racing local is a ton cheaper ..but the new car should be ready to run every where .the old car was cc speedway and kyle built .this one is dirt ..looking forward to seeing mary ann and racing this track ..hey rod 47 years old .still wet behind the ears ..
