August 2000 Minutes


It’s hard to believe that another racing season has gone by and new Champions have been crowned.  Now all that’s ahead of us in the banquet season.

In August the Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club Presented NASCAR Legend Darrell Waltrip with an appreciation award for his 30 years of auto Racing. It was an honor for me to present Darrell with this award in front of 80,000 fans at the Michigan Speedway.

Special Thanks to Tommy Cameron for making all the arrangements to give this award to Darrell and to Steve & Cory Russell for helping with the presentation & photos.  A Special thanks to Rob Michon for designing the award for Darrell.

As always feel free to write me or send an e-mail to
