Default Re: Coupe faces 1962

That's a nice recollection, BillyK41. I like those. We could probably do pages on the Palmers and their racing family. "Professor Coup" mentioned that John's Hudson was the first into the 13 second bracket, and I do remember that, or at least reading about it in the paper. Dug through my memorabilia and couldn't find it in a program (some years the programs didn't have track records listed) but did find mention in a CAM CLATTER (remember those?) piece in the Denver Post that John had the 1961 record with a 13.99. I believe that was set during the last race of the '61 season, but someone correct me if that's wrong.
