PAUL REVERE 250 1970

PAUL REVERE 250Daytona International SpeedwayFriday, July 3, 1970Race #17 of the 1970 season brought the Grand American Challenge Series to Daytona Beach Florida for the second time that year.

"Robert, They ran both the wedge and the Boss 302 engines. The small block Chevy had tons of torque up off the corners, especially the Trico engine, where the Ford motor came on a little higher in the RPM range. Had to keep the breath in them as dad…"

"Dennis, in the last article your father states that the Ford engines couldn't compete with the Chevys and AMCs - were they running the BOSS 302 or the Windsor type 302? I thought the BOSS motors were doing quite well in Trans-Am? "

Oldest son of Wayne Andrews. Growing up I did not know there was anything else to do but go to the race track on Saturday night and watch daddy race. I can't imagine a kid having more fun than I did. The memories are priceless. Did a little racing myself on dirt and paved short tracks, even got to do some road course racing.
How long have you been a race fan?
All my life.

3rd Generation Hot Shoes

Bowman-Gray Stadium regulars didn't win but dominated the top 5 of the modified race at the Daytona short track on the back stretch.

All were third generation drivers. The Myers brothers and a Fleming. The Fleming kid is young. Is he Frank's son?

The test of a man

Posted on July 21, 2011 at 6:32pm 3 Comments

The test of a man is the fight that he makes.

The grit that he daily shows,

The way that he stands on his feet and takes

Fate's numerous bumps and blows.

A coward can smile when there is naught to fear

When nothing his progress bars,

But it takes a man to…

Rusty Remains

This past Saturday I took a walk in the woods to talk with God and clear my head. It was an area that I had been to many times but it seemed different that day. As a boy I used to walk the path through these woods from our back yard to my great grandparents house but the path is no longer visible. The place I grew up on is no longer in the family so I stopped at the property line and tried to remember where the path was but the back side of the plot had been cleared years ago.

My mind…
