(Paul) Grynewicz, Bill Miller, Bill Ringheisen, Denny, J.R., and Charlie Meyer all gotta be up there…LOL…Ray Woosley…buncha names I can’t remember right now…(should “CRS” set in before you turn 40 - next month for me…LMAO - or does all that come later? Fenton? OSF? Jim-somethin’-or-other…?? Hheheheheheeee…;))

Paul Gryniwicz, Denny Meyers, and Charlie Meyers are still around. I saw Denny at citrus at the Eddie Brann race. I saw pauls son a few weeks ago. Jeret Meyers, I think he’s JR’s grandson, was at CCMP this past weekend. I think Bill miller passed. Bob…

Does anyone know if Butch Johnston is still around. Butch was one of the original drivers when Leo Musgrave built the track, and continued racing into the early 70’s. There was one stretch when Butch was driving the # 12, that he won 7 out of 10 features against guys like Dan Daughtry,Lester Sloan, Denny Myers, Aaron Collier, Tommy Brown, C.S.Olks, Butch Yokum, and “The FAT MAN” Elmer Siefert. …As OL’ Gordon Solie would say at Golden Gate… “Watch that intersection!!!”

Butch yokum is still around. We interviewed him at Auburndale last year. Bob…

I talked with Lester’s daughter (Rosie) a few weeks ago… Lester is retired and still living in the same place. I’ll give a PM to you with the contact number tomorrow.
