I grew up on the same block as Mark and I remember well when he built his first Sprint Car in a neighbors garage. When they first push fired it Mark took it around a residential block for a shake out ride. It was about 7 pm on a Summer night and the neighbors were bothered by the uncapped headers, and no clutch meant no observance of stop signs. It's a neat racing memory.
I am very sorry that I just saw Joe's post as I would have liked to attended Mark's Memorial Service. Rest in Peace, brother.
