This one is interesting. With the 3 Hour coming up, this is a little bit of history for you. This is Rick Kelly's car at the 3 Hour in the early 90's probably. If you look back, you probably won't find Rick's name listed anywhere for any of the 3 Hour races. This is the only one he attended with a car. He ended up smashing it to pieces as you can see here in practice or maybe qualifying and never made it to the race. Rick raced figure 8 at the Sportsdrome and Louisville Speedway.

Wrong hawk, I remember this like it was yesterday, we had just got there, I was like 10-11, he came on the track, through one and two, heading for the three the throttle stuck, he rode the wall all the way around to turn 4. He actually raced and made the race that year in Dave "Chicken" Lewis hotrod Lincoln stock car, that's how bad the out ot Towner were then, lol. Things have changed, this may have been around 94-95. I remember talking to him in the pit office....

I was just retelling the story as it was presented to me by the guy who let me borrow the pic. He said he never got to race. I guess he meant in this car.

There was a period where I moved away from the area and didn't stay in tuned. What ever happened to Bobby Douthitt? I also saw where Dossey was running a Late Model series. Same thing with Curtis McMurtry and Eddy Vanmeter?? Thanks!!

Here's a cool pic of the Sportsdrome in 1950 that I just discovered. That's Cliff's Truck Stop in the foreground.
