Title: Autographed hat
Post by: Chadley on 04/24/12, 07:33 PM
I mentioned this in a post a while back, so thought I'd show it off. I'm sure some of you guys have more autographs and/or pictures with drivers than I do, but I think this one is kind of unique.

This hat is signed by:

Nascar drivers - Kyle Petty, Harry Gant, Michael Waltrip, Ken Schrader
IndyCar driver - Scott Brayton
NHRA drivers - "Big Daddy" Don Garlits, John Force, Joe Amato, Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen, Mike Dunn
World of Outlaws sprint car drivers - Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell
Monster truck driver - "Bigfoot" Andy Brass

Dang that's cool Robert. I met Shirley once briefly, but she wasn't in a good mood that day.

Shirley? In a good mood? Sure! I've met her on several occasions. Once at the 'Last Drag Race' @ Fremont (she was signing the event poster for me when Brent Davis [who we were pitted with] crashed his FE/TF ~ but that's a whole other story). Also got Leong, Dunn & Garlits to sign that one. The 'Snake' was having a bad day so I steered clear of him.
 
Another time when she was booked in to sign autographs at a car show in Oregon. We chatted for maybe 45 minutes at that one. That could have had something to do with the fact that I showed up wearing a Shirley shirt though.

I've got hoards of drag racing-related stories (it's what happens when you spend years crewing for a couple of touring Jet Dragsters). One of them involves getting Force drunk at a sit down banquet. That was a fun night.

Nice hat Chadley.

If she didn't cuss you out... then she was in a pretty good mood.  :)
