This is Pokey West, a local stock car racer from my childhood. Friends my parents hung out with lived on a farm and would have a pig roast once ln awhile. They invited Pokey West to come in his stock car and impress us kids. I still remember his car coming down the gravel road and turning into the lane to the house. He signed autographs for us, we were duly impressed to meet a real celebrity.

In a shack in a 1-horse town
I too had a local hero who raced stock cars. Don Fitzgerald was his name, and in my little world, he walked on water. :up:

Sometimes when other classes were on the track, he would come out to the stands to sit and chat with me and my mother for a couple minutes. I was about 8 years old and felt like a big shot.
I have a couple framed pictures of him out in my shop... will scan and post them one of these days.
