Olen thank you so very much, I am glad you enjoyed it!! This seems to be the most appropriate place to share this video, I am happy I was able to. Who knows Olen, maybe someone who raced with my father in law will see it and say "Hey I remember him"

I just want to say. What a beautiful tribute, that is really cool, also seeing many of the guys that I grew up watching at 2 great racetracks was very enjoyable. Nice job, I hope you contribute more to this great site.

Carol,
I did not know of your father-in-law George's racing career, living on the other side of the world. No matter...that Tribute is just superb! You should be very proud of that work.
I reckon your dad-in-law is very lucky to have you as a daughter-in-law!
