    Default 1974 Dayton Nationals

    In the book Speed and Spray I remember seeing Wyatt Nelson's name in J Runabout. He bought some 45 blocks a few years back and then I called him to see if he was happy with them. He said, "I'm happy with them." We talked at least an hour. We covered a lot of ground...

    An Art Pugh Quote or Two

    Runabout: Run about so far then toss driver in the water

    "Harry, I don't know nothing about propellers, but I do know coon dogs. And you don't want that dogs' cousin, or brother..." (Harry being Harry Bartolomei, 1967, DePue).

    Default Mike Jackson AKA Oldalkydriver

    Mike's dad, Bob and my brother raced hard against each other in the 1950's.

    Mike raced at the First Nationals at Lake Ming.


    Interesting guy. He owned roller rinks, then a motel in the Philippines. He also owned Mike's hamburgers there.

    We didn't see each other often, but we had been friends since childhood!

    Not much news about this, but I was told today that Rich Krier passed away from trauma injuries suffered from a boat racing accident on Lake Jackson in Illinois on September third. Rich succumbed to the injuries on September 8. This is a sad and terrible event. I don't know why It has taken this long for the news of his passing to get out, nor what happened. Keep the Krier family in our prayers.

    Very sad news, Wayne. I did a search, and there are a few articles online about the accident. An amazing guy, Rich Krier.
