|For those who don't know, Gary Taylor is living in Indiana, and working at Engler Machine. He has been racing non-wing around the state with USAC, KISS, and local tracks.
This weekend, he will be heading to Great Falls to drive the Peterson 23n, Friday and Saturday in the BSST series, back to Indy Sunday night, and race non wing at Kokomo.
Wednesday will see GT at Terre Haute running USAC on the half mile.
Friday he will fly in to Seattle, and compete with the ASCS NW Region at Grays Harbor on Saturday and Sunday in the Peterson 23n.
Let's hope for some great weather. Enjoy the races, where ever you decide to watch them at.
This will be our racing weekend to remember Fred Brownfield. Fred helped many racers through the years, and Gary was one of them.
I was reading an interview with Beef Packers car owner, Dennis Roth, in Flat Out magazine, and this is what he had to say: " You hear so many pros and cons about running with the World of Outlaws, but they have lived up to everything they where going to do.
Now I did fall off the so called bandwagon as people have said and joined the National Sprint Tour in 2006. The reason why I did that was because I had a tremendous amount of respect for Fred Brownfield. I always thought, and still think, of Fred Brownfield as a unique person for Sprint Car racing and as an individual, and if he would not have lost his life, I think he would have built the NST into a bigger tour than the WoO, because he was that kind of guy- a dedicated promoter and a Sprint Car lover. Fred Brownfield didn't worry about lining his own pockets; he wanted the NST to become the number one series in Sprint Car racing. It was a downside and a tremendous hit to Sprint Car racing when that happened. Fred Brownfield was a great person with a huge heart and Sprint Car racing misses him a lot".
