Hey to Dino and the ODF crowd,
I had the pleasure of working for Tommy Valentine in my younger years. He taught me how to drive ten wheelers and operate some of the heavy equiptment used in those days, even do repair work on them. He was a perfect gentleman to say the least, and would always give you the right answer to a question asked. I used to watch him work on his equiptment, cars, etc. He was a perfectionist, bar none. When he started to race at Dover, all of us would follow him up to watch him, hence the name “Pied Piper”. I learned a lot from him and miss him, as I’m sure many others due too.
