Billy & Barbara Scott
One of the highlights of Billy Scott's racing career, to race the super speedway with the drivers he had driven with thoughout his career on the dirt track circuit. Many congratulations came from some of the drivers and car owners. He was offered a ride the folllowing week at Dover but he said, "I've already lost $500., just being out of work". Glenn Wood told Billy if he didn't stay active in Grand National Racing, in a few months the fans would not even remember his name. We are really surprised how many people do remember him. Thanks to the great racing fans!!!
