Since I'm now apparently an "A-body expert", the Miller's invited me over to disassemble dad Keith's '69. They're big race fans, and son Christopher has helped me pack parachutes at the track, so it was the least I could do. https://t.co/9VTMyP3vnL
'Dutch, from Baer Brakes' is 'Santa, from the North Pole' as far as I'm concerned. Today he brought the Elco back and the brakes are significantly better! Master cylinder, front pad compound and pedal geometry were all factors. Thanks to Hal and everyone there for the effort. https://t.co/0JH5s5hOW6
How lucky can a guy get? Tonight, (along with IRL's Roger Bailey, MC Marty Reid, Linda Vaughn and, uh...BIG DADDY!) I was part of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America's celebration for "Ohio" George Montgomery, a legend and a friend. I'm humbled...and still grinning. https://t.co/PBeuvV4Hcj
Yesterday was my third and final day of filming at the NHRA Museum for some website updates. Les Mayhew is a great cameraman/director/producer, and Greg Sharp is incredible as a historian. Me...I guess I was there for my looks! https://t.co/epJRCtK6MJ
