Favorite "mouth of the south" quote..."Richard Petty, your presence is required at the drivers' meeting immediately if not sooner!" of he would say that all the time every time he was paging someone. I always got a kick out of hearing it, and everytime he would mention Jesse Jones franks made my dad and I would head to the concession stand, we would eat 15-20 hotdogs a day easy...As Clyde said, Lewis definitely made the day fun for us all...Lewis, Thank You for all the memories, and your voice will echo through the stands forever

Lewis, was great, he had that something, that "SPECIAL" voice that made the day at Martinsville Speedway a great day, those Precious Memories.

Not only was Lewis a great man, a great race announcer, but he was also an AUCTIONEER!    I had heard Lewis for years at Martinsville, but it wasn't until I attended Auctioneer School in 1981 that I learned that one of the instructors was Lewis Compton....one and the same... NO ONE has matched his expertise at the microphone at Martinsville since he left the announcer's stand!
