I don’t know how much you remember of me, but I lettered your dad’s race car from his super late model around ’84, until I did the first Winnebago car that was on the first hero cards with them. Designed the paint scheme Brian won his ARCA races in.
In 1990, I started traveling with Charlie Newby, so I remember those days well that you were talking about.
I don’t know if you know about the story when we blew the rear end up coming home from Daytona testing in ’94. Lucky your dad’s car was being taken to the SEMA show, when they stopped to see if they could help. They took Charlie around to the junk yards to find Nother axle. Not shaft the whole assembly. Brake drum to brake drum. We actually changed to whole rear end on the side of I-75. We all had those kind of days.
After Charlie stopped the full time thing, I went to work for ARCA. Became one of the flagmen, but had a heart attack at Springfield about a half hour after Dean Roper did. Things went up and down, and had to retire from everything around 2005. Fifty years of a track rat over that fast. Mg dad used to grade Mt. Clemens when it was dirt, so I was there if there was a race.
So if at a track a tall guy, who did sometimes people came to me because they thought I was Ron, says “Hi, I’m Dennis.” well that will be me.
Congrats on your recognition as one of the good ones, even if some at the track don’t know the real you and your family.
