I am in Louisville, TN, from Moline where I owned a stock car in 1952 racing next to rock river track. I get the Knoxville News Sentinel 4 days a week for 43 cents for this coming year and I guess it is because monday by reading and calling I got an answer to my question, did Harvick win Sunday. Sports section said he raced Saturday night and I said Twinkie he raced in Iowa (it was on TV)on that track designe by Rusty Wallace. I put my @2 watch on his inflatable car at the clud at the national guard base. I am retired from Nam and oh yes I worked in 1953 for John Deere; actually I was a moline mail clerk carrier and finisshed with 20 years in the postal service, but disappointe me preacher father by missing 4 courses of getting my degree in college which started in 1952 Moline community College while still in High school. Pensions only come to meager 37k per year. I still cant find out if that 16 year old Joey went to the win after passing tthe millionaire. When the petty charity ride came throough Knoxville there were about 35 of us at the Pilot TRavel Center to greet actually get autographs. That night on Tvthey showed King Richard Petty autographing my yellow cap for me and Hershel Walker of Georgia football fame and shook hands with other notables. A friend of mine brought me a t shirt from Iowa, Chinese soy sauce ad?? Soy Biodiesel 250 Hooters Inaugural weekend Sept 15,2006 and it says IOWA Speedway. I went to a meeting and got up to Richard petty and was going to ask him to autograph the red shirt because I heard he had some connection with that new program and an official told the King I was a gate crasher through the drivers door and had to go get in line with the other 1500 people and I tried to give him 50 slides of him driving @ 43 which I was not allowed and I told the King I had his autograph on the cap I was wearing from the charity ride and so I was not going to get in line with 1500 people as by accident I did not know there was a front door around the corner I still dont know who won the grand National and here in Tennessee they dont even know there was one.
