I guess I'm like OBM and am hung up on this too, but I have one more Ray Hendrick story. One Friday night at Trico Ray got tangled up with somebody and went over the guardrail in turn 1 and 2, and there was a little pond off turn 1 back then, and Ray's car landed in that pond upside down. I thought to myself, well, he will not win this one I bet. The pulled that car out of the edge of the pond and took it back to the pits, and I'll be darned if they didn't get that car back in the race, somehow (I'll never know how), but Clayton and the boys did it. He took his place in the rear of the field and was coming through the field with that car, top mashed in and all, and a puff of smoke came out of it on the backstretch and he pulled her in and retired. I would be willing to bet he would have won that race if the car had lasted and if he had the time. I am not making this up, maybe someone can post that remembers that night. I was stunned when the put that car back on the track that night. It was about that time that I began to acquire a great amount of respect Mr. Ray Hendrick and Clayton Mitchell, and Jack Tant, and the others who worked on that car.
