When I was full of enthusiasm and wore my rose colored glasses I beat the bushes pretty hard trying to get most, some, any... of the "old" racers to come to Clay City.

I got the latest SSRN directory from Seymour and called everyone I could.

I've pestered folks like Howard Davis, Barry Harrison, The Drakes, Gordie Stevens, Pete Nichols,... yadda yadda yadda... :roll:

The only person that actually showed up was Mark "Team Green". Thanks Mark! You made it all worth it and it's great having you back racing with us again! :wink:

I've still got all of my Slant 6 junk stored away and plan to get back to it,... eventually... :lol:

I wuz just sittin' here wanderin' through the forum again in the early mornin' hours with the house all quiet & stuff...

It occurred to me that the only reason y'all ain't lookin' at that Championship thread all that much this year is 'cuz I ain't been addin' all that color commentary stuff like I dun all them other years! :shock:

Some of you don't wanna admit it, but you know you like it when I do that... :lol:

Any who... I just wanna repeat myself...

Any who... I just wanna repeat myself... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I ain't the one what called Rick a pessi,...pesim,...pessimi,...

A negative kinda guy! :P

I need another cup of coffee...............................................

I agree, I think all auto racing is on it's last leg.
I am thinking about the next license plate for the Lancer:
"Not your great-grandma's slant 6"

Hopefully there is one more glimmer of hope. Barry Harrison was at our race in Wilkesboro 2 weeks ago and he said he plans to race with us again in 2017.

That's awesome Rick!! He wasn't on the points roster and there wasn't any mention of him, so I wasn't aware he showed up. Very cool! 8)

Way to go in passing on your knowledge to the next evolution of Slant 6 racer Charlie! :wink:

Wow, that would be cool have Barry back in Slanted action. Always a nice guy with a fast and well built car...

Looking forward to Clay City...
