Thanks for your website, Jack. It brings back so many memories, and Toni loves looking at them as well. Take care.

Sumter and Ashwood
I started going to races at Sumter Speedway, probably in 1967 0r '68. I remember the names like Craven Kiker, Charleton McLeod, Mutt Powell and the like, but my favorite was always Billy Baker. I remember going to Sumter one night and they were having a convertible race. Billy won the pole, but had to start in the back because his was not a contertible. Well it didn't take long for them to get out the torches and take the roof off. I think he won that night, like most of the nights I saw him run at Sumter. I'd heard about Hartsville, but wasn't aware of a track at Ashwood. I live about 4 miles from the Ashwood area. Does anyone have any pictures or recollection of the location of the Ashwood track?

Raleigh Speedway (both 1/4 & 1 mile), Franklin Raceway,Henderson Raceway, Wilson Fairgrounds, Goldsboro Raceway, Legion Field Wilmington, Washington Park Raceway, Myrtle Beach SC, Mcormick Field Asheville, Fayetville Raceway, Johnson County Speedway, Jacksonville NC, Dunn Raceway, Martinsville Speedway Va, Danville Fairgrounds, Bowman Gray Stadium, Greensboro Fairgrounds and many more I can't remember. By the way I fix up an old Plymouth for Dick Mendenhall to drive in an amateur race.
