Default Re: Sprint car legends

I get a laugh whenever I think how Gary Ponzini would complain when he had to install a cage on his car, he hated it, bitched, whined and mumbled about how he couldn't see anything ... one of the good old time sprint car drivers. The more I read the more I realize how fortunate I was to not only grow up in the 60's and 70's era of sprint car racing but how absolutely blessed I am to have been allowed to hang out with and work for Fred and Gary .... great guys

Hi Mitch, Ralph Liguori was one of my favorites to watch back in the day. Im his cousin, he is 90 now and not in good health. I think he pushed mediocre rides to the limit. Have a great day, Bob.
