Think about this. How far ahead of time were Neil Upchurch and Dick Conole putting these races together. For us what great weekends we had while watching our local guys on a big track. I remember my Dad and I would go to go buy tickets in advance and we felt like we were going to the Indy 500.

Great times, great racing, and stories.

Thanks Nick.    Did this win you the Pulitzer or was it another Fryar story??

That was a great day.   That last lap was incredible.

Some great names in those results, in all the classes.

Well, no.  Still waiting on the Pulitzer Prize.  Maybe they'll award posthumously.  But the Light did up my payroll from $0.00 a week to $10.00 a week!  The bowling writer made $25 a week, so you know how the sports editor felt about local motorsports.
