This is actually victory lane at Talladega Superspeedway when D.W. won that race. They used this pic on the front of the Nashville 420 brochure for that year. Please note that I am wearing, 1)Richard Petty style sunglasses, 2) a Richard Petty t-shirt which still hangs here in the lair, and 3) a Petty Enterprises Racing cap. They handed out bottles of Gatorade in victory lane and I got one too, it was hot that day. When I went over to have my sandwich with Richard, Lynda and the family, The King commented something about me going "over to the enemy". Guess that is before "The Darkside" became popular from Star Wars. As for your comments, Mr. Gilder, the hair was a statement of the day. As for being a closet D.W. fan, the idiot almost ran over me on the way to victory lane so I was hanging on the roll bar expressing my opinion of his driving talents not realizing he couldn't hear me after the race. Now I realize that he doesn't hear ANYONE. He's too busy running HIS mouth. I still wonder how I sat on that hot hood!!! Oh, and Jeff, don't forget, I'll see YOU tomorrow!!!!!

Here are a couple of rough but memorable video clips from the race with the legendary Ken Squier on the call.
