MY NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN MY FAMILY HAS BEEN SEEING MY 2

I WON MANY FEATURES IN SPEEDWAY CARTS AT PARADISE SPEEDWAY,
LIMEROCK SPEEDWAY & AVON RACEWAY PARK IN THE EARLY '80'S.  I
RETIRED FROM GO-KART RACING IN 1983 DUE TO A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.  
FROM 2000 TO 2004 I WON 14 FEATURE EVENTS WITH MIDSTATE VINTAGE
MODIFIED STOCK CARS.  2005 WAS A YEAR OFF TO DO HOUSE
RENOVATIONS.  2006 NEW CLUB, NEW COMPETITION.  JUST BECAUSE I'M
GETTING OLDER & OUR RACING MACHINES ARE PRE-WAR MODIFIEDS,
DON'T MAKE US SLOW.
