Dino and all of us who new Billy will miss him greatly. He will go on threw the memory of this great site that u guys out there put together. I looked at Billys year book pic the other night and all the racing on the sprain pky and twin donut race nights came back in my mind. So dont worry Billy it will be a long time and u will never be forgotten because the white clouds in the sky are u doing burn outs up there. RIP Lou Saltarelli ( saltydogfromyo)
