It's very sad but we have an awful lot of wonderful people that been so important in racing that are coming into an age that we will be losing a lot them in the near future. I'm hoping the Hall of Fame can be built and opened before we lose anymore of stockcar racing's greats.

Richard and family were friends and neighbors in Vermont in the 1960's. His passing is a loss to everyone fortunate enough to know this great man.

It's sad to hear Dick has passed on. That's three of Mikey's former car owners dead now, including the one that took a chance on him and brought him into Cup racing.

He built NHMS or Dover, and was Mikey's first co-owner to give Mikey his first start in cup series! I Believe!
