Junior Medlock took the wheel on the #5 SportMod at Thunderhill Raceway last night. This 70+ legend joined his grandson, Shawn Paul Lehman (aka Crazyhorse) in the SportMod feature race.

-in case he fails to mention-

other than the tube work, he build that car in a week and a half. procrastination,,keeps ya on your toes.

I noticed the #5 on his car. Im to lazy to do a search so I'll just ask....Was that his old number? If not then what was it? Just curious.

 

When we first started racing at THR, Junior and Shawn ran twin super stocks. They were 5 and 15, and I believe Junior's was the 5 car.

 

The Daisy next to his name over the door is special too - in remembrance of his late wife Daisy I'm sure.

heat kind of got too me Friday and pretty much ended

there to see you next time.

And I want to take a few pics of you and the car. :D
