I'd say that was early. Where was that taken?

I had never heard of Harry before he got to Winston Cup but I did like to watch him race. NICE GUY!

Yes he is a nice guy and he DID like to run that high line.

I'd heard him referred to as "High Groove Harry" but never "High Line Harry".

THANKS FOR SHARING THAT!!!

I saw him almost make it 5 wins at North Wilksboro in the cup series that season he was so hot. Brake failure with few laps to go did him in and Earnhardt went by for the win.
