Some thoughts and NASCAR
I am sitting here trying to conjure up something of interest, and ‘It ain’t getting thru to me’. We have had a good day. It has been many years since I watched a NASCAR race, and today I watched part of the Daytona 500. I went outside to see if I could hear the cars, but I couldn’t. It is about 25 miles to the track from our home in Deltona.
At one time I bought a Roach Coach from Sherry’s brother. I had two Breakfast/lunch stops NASCAR related. One was Holmon-Moody who built race engines and the other was the Digard Gatorade Team. When the Gatorade Team won I gave out Free Tea.
It was called "Jack's Wagon"
I sold the truck to Son Mark, He picked up a stop at Race Hill farms. Then sold the business to Son Jack. Jack was here during the race so we recalled some stuff we both remembered. Ricky Rudd, Darrel Waltrip and Bobby Allison drove for Gatorade.
Bobby Allison drove the most during my time as a Roach Coach Driver. He seemed to be a nice guy. The whole team was good, it was a fun stop. Allison won the 1983 Winston Cup.
I left that career (LOL) and started building. My life has been sort flexible. HA!.
