Thanks! I considered Kenny a very good friend and never stop talking about him. He called me Barney O'come, whatever that meant. I spent many hours with him at the radiator shop back in the late 70's before moving away.
A funny story is that I was a big Don LaJoie fan, and a friend and I built a race car for Thompson (#711). and we would drive to Norwalk from New Milford on weekends to ask Don advice (we knew NOTHING!)..... One Saturday he said to me, "Why are you coming to me for advice, Kenny Webb lives in New Milford- go see him and save a long drive!"
So a week later I showed up to his shop (the old one next to Andy's) and introduced myself. He smiled and said "hey get me that wrench over on the bench." I did, we became friends and Kenny became my hero! However we still kept the 711 number racing!
I miss him... RIP Kenny. The world could you a few more of you in racing today!
