    I remember this picture. I believe it was in one of George Butland's programs at CNS. I can't remember the announcer's name but I do remember the "Flying Flea" moniker didn't stick for long. The story I heard, from Ernie DiCroce I think, was that Walter Judge, Jr's mechanic, put the word out pretty quick to NOT dub him with that name. The next year when he drove the Pennzoil sponsored ride I heard the announcer say over the PA system one night that he "looked like a little can of Pennzoil" - don't know if that got a reaction out of Walter or not.
