      You are correct.. The person who I got the photos from told me it was Mr. Reeves. I Had a friend of gradys confirm that this was not Grady Reeves. Thank You for getting the caption corrected.. Bobby

    THIS IS MY UNCLE BABE MY MOST FAMOUS HERO OF ALL TIME. HE WAS SUPERMAN TO ME. I AM NOW 57 YEARS OLD AND I KNOW THAT HE IS THE REASON THAT I LIKE RACING AS MUCH AS EVER. DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE PICTURES OF HIM ? I LIVE IN TAMPA,FL AND THIS SITE BRINGS BACK SO MANY MEMORIES.
    THANKS
