Hi Mitch,
An encyclopedia is what I married many years ago. Not only Denver racing, but movies and television shows as well. Chris was very helpful when I was sec/trea of the CARC and needed to know something from the past. He just has a mind that keeps information all stored up for us to delve into when we don't know the answer.

Once in awhile he gets stumped, but not for long. Down to the basement he goes to research. Chris does enjoy ARM and looking back at the years of racing from this area.

Don't ask me for an answer...I can't remember what I had for supper last night!
