Woah, those guys had some BALLS!



I was at a race in GA back in 92. I had a sticker from a machine shop (that had been around since the 50's) on the fender.


This old cat comes walking up & starts asking me some questions about it & that turned into a 45 minute conversation about how him & the owners of that shop raced back in the 50's.

I could tell that he knew them well, not just spreading stories he heard.

One thing that struck me more than anything he said was:


Back then, somebody either got seriously hurt or killed almost every weekend.

Getting in when you stood a good chance of getting killed.... Crazy:rolleyes:


I almost forgot...... That old dude was Tommy Chapman from VP Fuels.




I made this compilation video a few years back.

Judging by the first pic, looks like he blew a fuel line and raw gas got on the header.

I guess I meant the story on how bad the damage was, did it get rebuilt, etc.
Well, that fire department didn't look like they were in no hurry. :rolleyes:
