I remember this race clearly . This picture was made during practice or 1st round qualifying. The #20 car was being cooled in prep for its turn on the grid. Rick Newsom failed to make this race due to an engine problem. I stayed & helped Bonnett's Armor All effort during the race. I am the guy barely visible behind the #20 car next to the building. Mike Rogers did this eye catching paint job on #20. It led me the nickname this car "chicken little" which was inspired by an ad campaign for a local dealership that used a chick in an egg with wheels on it titled "the little cheaper dealer". My contention was this was a "little cheaper racer". It made Rickey laugh, which was the entire point.

Nope...We don't charge, but tips are accepted.
