Default Tom Eller

This posting is very late, but my dad Tom Eller passed away April 3, 2002, at the age of 64. He was active in the racing circles for a very long time, Primarily Englewood Speedway, Building and Owing numerous cars, he drove for a while but he mostly built and was an owner. He was on the pitt crew for a number of years as well.

Hi Al,


I do remember Mike and Andy Sipres, and I remember an Al that hung out but I think by that time my sister and I didnt live with Dad anymore....not sure about that though if it was the blue house on Yale mom and dad had already split up, if it was the houe on Amherst, we lived there.... but I was younger than Mike and his buds, so I was just a bratty kid Growing up though Dads was the "hot spot" for the neighbor hood boys.
