Autographed hat
« 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.
I went outside once. The graphics weren't all that great.
I suffer from CDO. It's like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!
If you can't spill it, it ain't 'paint'!

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