thanks for the backup shovelhead. i grew up in forest acres so we were probably pretty close. used to go by yogi bear chicken and load up for the race. i dont think we ever saw color back then just good race fans and participants. took my son to elgin couple of years ago to show him where the track used to be and stopped in town and talked to a few locals, had a blast. great little town.

I assume it's still there, but at least up until a few years ago, there was still a couple hundred feet of the track left. And the judges stand. It's kinda hard to see because they built a trailer town around it. The streets have names like Garlits Dr and Ivo Ln. I hope it's still there. That's a piece of history.

Columbia, SC I see you've found somebody else you can try to bully just because they don't agree
with you. You never learn.

Columbia, SC No Maria. What I said was that she would 'try' to bully you. You've already shown me
that she won't succeed. It didn't take you long to figure her out.

Surely you don't need nor want to add any more bad traits to yourself. So go ahead and keep all that
we've done to you, for you and have given you. Don'r be crass.
Now THAT is sarcasm with maybe a little irony thrown in. Read and learn, read and learn... ""

<quoted text>As I said before, I grew up in Dentsville but half the kids I grew up with lived in Elgin (even when it was Blaney) so I was pretty familiar with this area. Like you, I don't remember any problems between blacks and whites. Or any major problems between anybody. Too bad there is always one who has to start something, just for kicks. Ignore it.
I'm sorry guys, I had my head tucked between my butt when I made this post. I'm really not in touch with reality. I know, I am in need of some serious help.

You know what they say about imitation. It comes from people who have mind of their own.
