Hey! I remember these names. Don't remember the track, but I do know the names. By the time I decided to see what racing was all about, they were racing at the track by the river. The Asheville Speedway I think it was called. You know, the one that Asheville closed and made into a park for a few people.

Those were the good old days. Wish we still had a track so the young people today could experience the things we did when were children.
