      Tommy was my grandfather. I was wondering if you could tell me more about his racing days.

    I'm surprised Moody didn't have any of the pics of Alton Jones and Greenwell's run ins which carried over from Thursdays in Huntsville to Birmingham on Fridays included in his collection.

      I was looking to find contact info for Tommy Andrews. I am searching for an old GA Mustang that I was told he may have info on. Any help would be appreciated.

    This is the one race night I missed that year.  I read or heard where the flames were shooting up 50 feet.
     
    David Casteel went on to wrecker fame in Madison County, AL... Casteel Wreckers.
     
    Hoyt Salters went on to drive one of the fastest and prettiest 57 Chevy's out of the B'ham area, #10 I think.  He was known for only letting off the accelerator halfway in the turns.  I think Neil Bonnett took over one of his cars in later years.

    Yea Larry! One time I was at races with my sister, & we ran out of gas about 1/2 mile after turning right on Hobbs Island Rd. A narrow rd, in the dark, car on edge of rd, cars speeding by, we got out, & started walking back to the corner store. Then our prayers were answered as we saw Larry's car & truck. Larry had had a bad night on the track, & was heading in the opposite direction to his home. We started running & yelling at Larry who I had luckily met through my Dad's work. We ran up to his truck, & in his slow southern drawl he asked was what we wanted. We told him, he turned his truck & trailer around, filled a gas can for us, and carried back to our car. In the dark, car on edge of road, cars speeding by, Larry poured gas in the tank, made sure car started, & made sure we were safely back on road. I doN't know how far out of his way he went but, I do know that Larry Catlett was a good & gracious man!
    Thanks Larry for the Great ride!  We miss you!

    Rhea Greenwell, "The Invader from Decatur"!
    It was such a joy to watch "The Invader from Decatur" race for a win!  Many races he had the only Ford racing at HSV. 
     
    Thanks Rhea Greenwell for the memories!

    That group of Cadet drivers was just about the best overall group the track had for Cadets.
    Those were the days!

    I remember this race!  It was good, and the names we saw for the low admission were really something.  Unfortunately, neither of the locals, Tommy Andrews or Gary Myers, had good nights.  It was fun to watch TIger Tom Pistone, Buck Baker, and Jim Pascha racingl, as well as, seeing Tiny Lund take the victory!
     
    It's a shame HSV Speedway couldn't have done more of these... just less laps.
