    Your dad was a good guy, I only knew him for about a year and half, but was a good time to talk with him and about racing..

    Thank you. Been a hard time and one reason took abit to post something. We raced the last night of st charles before she closed and he made the feature out of over 100 cars in our class. One of the highlights he always talked about. I posted a video on youtube of that night and shows the whole night of racing. We always tried to have fun even when it was aggrivating at the same time

    Thank you all. My company is donating a fund for tri city's friday night race in honor of my dad. My idea since dad's number was 88 and ran street stocks and sportman im trying to work with kevin and pay a bonus to the lap 8 leader of the street stock feature and lap 8 leader of the b mod feature. Stay tuned!
