    Alton, was there a grocery or drug store across from your home? If so, when I was a young violinist in the Birmingham Symphony, I worked days for Jefferson News delivering magazines across the street. My girl friend and I saw you race against the Allisons and Neil Bonnet one night at BIR. You were the reigning track champion, but Bonnet won that night. I sort of regret that a racing fan like me was not more active in pursuing racing in that time, since I had (have) gone to the Indianapolis "500' since I was two years and a day old in 1947. I did see a couple of the first Tallagega Speedway races and the first two NASCAR and at least a couple Indycar races at Michigan Intl. Speedway, which was near where I attended college and right down the road from my future inlaws.. I finally raced carts from 1982 - 1997 and from the camaraderie of those days, really do envy you your record and the friends you seem to have had helping along your way. So, several decades too late, congrats on your great years racing in Alabama.

    That' s the night when Rusty Wallace got his butt handed to him. Southland fire equipment wasn't even in the same league as Burger. Back 60s and 70s he kicked all the big league boys butts. BIR was the place, Huntsville, Montgomery, Nashville he kicked but at all of them. He was the man in all pro races. Enjoyed watching him..
