I understand that I am hung up on the Ray Hendrick theme this weekend however, I believe this topic is very important and The Racing Illiterate at NASCAR needs to address. One only had to listen to the race announcers and fans to see and hear the reverence that they feel for Ray Hendrick and Jack Tant to understand the important role they played in the advancement of oval track racing in the mid 60s and for years after. Ray obviously had the wins, respect and sheer desire to win that makes him the epitome of what makes a great racer and a racer that is the cornerstone of what became NASCAR. I have often heard two stories about two drivers that put their importance if perspective. (1) An old race fan goes up to his minister and says, if I live a good life and try to do no wrong, when I die will I go to Richard Petty's house. (2) An old race fan dies and gets to the Pearly Gates and tells St. Peter he wants to spend eternity at a beautiful race track, when he gets there he sees a beautiful red modified turning amazing laps. When they get a little closer they see that the red Modified has a flying eleven on the doors. The race fan turns to St. Peter and says, I did not know Ray Hendrick passed away to which St. Peter turns and says, he has not, that is just God, pretending.
