Does Anybody remember the day at Dover …we had a rain shower in the morning. So we parked all the cars in the burn-out area right through the starting line and down the track to to try to keep everything dry ? So there we all sat looking at each other….I got the the brilliant idea to Break the silence to give a “Weather Report”. Used the big Tower window as my weather map…grabbed Charlie T.s shoe polish bottle and went at it,George Carlin style. Got the window completely covered so you couldn’t see me any more then fell on the floor. Will never forget that day……had you guys rolling in the isles.(starting line). We did run too. Now the Yankees do the the same thing …cover the field ….got that idea from us !

Bet ya can’t I D all the cars?
Every one knows that a race car is like a sponge,(sucks you dry) so I’ll bet it worked, mater of fact i know it worked, we were there that day.
I remember doing that more than once, but one day a few thought that after it rained they would try a pass down the track instead of going slow ( who goes down the track slow ) but about half way down they lost it and went into the grass, no damage but after that we all had to back up and go in the hot pits or back up the staging lanes. Then they would bring out the track [ DRYER ] old CJ jeep with a carpet tied to the back and run it up and down the track. The good old days !!!!.
