My thoughts on Martinsville
 OTHER 
Posted by:  Harry on September 26, 2017 at 3:11am

I went to the Martinsville race this weekend which brought joy and also brought some memories back.

I watched the race with Dale and Sherri York and family. It is so nice to sit with great people and it reminds me of what I enjoyed so much about my time involved in racing. Great racing friends and great people. I also ran into my long lost friend Rob (yes RR Rob) who was lost from his seating section! LOL!

Watching the unfortunate side of racing brought back memories of working our butts off repairing wrecked cars on the 28 team. Even better was my dear friend and crew chief Ronnie Manring sitting there cracking off the wall jokes and witty sayings. I miss you Ronnie. The times I spent working on the 28 team were some of the best times in my life. The times also brought life time friends which I will cherish forever.

After watching the 1st heat race of 25 laps take an hour to complete I could only think of Lance Childress and working for him at Caraway Speedway. I started laughing thinking about sitting in the pace car running lap after lap under caution with Lance going crazy in the tower. I could not help thinking I have lead more laps in every division at Caraway Speedway although I think Bernie Millikan may be catching me! When they called the last chance race after I think 8 laps once again I was laughing so hard thinking about Lance probably doing the same thing. Oh yes Lance and I had some disagreements but I miss him and will cherish the times we had together.

Without a doubt how racing use to be…..good friends, good times, good racing and great memories.

Harry
