    There's nothing like childhood memories, my favorite cars were for the most part were guys I grew up watching.

    I did forget to mention, Michael Johnson and his family, Joey Tanksley, Jim Winje(the first mopar I ever compete in Comp), and there was guy who drove a B/EA 97-00's Camaro with a small cubic inch Mopar.

    Brian Browell
    David Rampy
    Jim Winje
    Joey Tanksley
    David Billingsley
    Mike Saye
    Pete Carberry
    Jerry Hemmingson
    Scott Benham
    Mike Farrell
    Frank Aragona
    Jeff Taylor
    Larry Pritchett
    Ted May
    Rick Hord
    George Gallimore
    Jerry Arnold
    John Frech
    Mike Trumble
    Todd Patterson
    Steve Schmidt


    I'm sure that I have missed some other names but all of these guys are the individuals that made me want race in Comp and love this class so much. After all, whats a better melody than hearing an engine sing through the gears at 9500+ rpm lol?

    yup that was the car i have pictures of him and my dad racing and there was a black 63 corvette, i think the guy was from missisippi or something like that that ran g and h gas. don't hold me to it because i am trying to remember some of this stuff from when i was like 5 years old. there are guys on this site that lurk that would know who im talking about. i remember some of the other cars that were on there too. that is really cool.

    I'm too young to remember this stuff but I got this email today...

    "I was reading ian's post on inside comp the corvette he was thinking about that your dad raced against was billy mansell from miss. someone should mention the 63 that your dad drove for us, not many guys could of drove that car the way it was in the air."
