    Paul, I agree. They always had a nice looking, clean car and seemed to run pretty well for a limited funds team. RIP R.C.

    Sorry to hear this. I remember seeing R.C. racing at Atco when I was a kid. No one can ever forget the crash he had in Baton Rouge when I think the throttle hung open. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

    Man, this has been a tough year.:(

    I remember seeing him in Nitro Nick's Raybestos car in Brainerd. During a rain delay, we killed some time talking racing with them in their pit. They let us stand under the awning and stay dry. Very nice people. Nick was talking about Eddie Hill's "wide" tires that mysteriously disappeared into the hauler after a particularly fast run.

    R.I.P.

    I remember the big crash he had. His initials from then on stood for Radical Crash.

    RIP
