Thumbs up Oldie but a goodie

Hi All,

New here...duh...but a lifelong race fan....that's a long time. Somewhere out in cyberspace there are some pictures and captions of my Dads career. Used to be on TheVintageRacer.com stockcarreunion.com and his stats were available somewhere......he was one of 7 that had top 5's in his first 5 NASCAR races. What makes this special to me is.....he DROVE the RACE CAR to the races....from California. His pit crew ?? He used to get out of the car to add gas while one or two locals changed the tires with a hand jack and a 4-way lug wrench !! In 1951 he finished 18th in NASCAR points.
Not bad for only running 13 of 41 races. And he drove the race car to the races......also to the market, work, school, movies......
See if you can find something....His name was Erick Erickson
