One of my life long friends and crew member, originally from Tennessee, sent me a great Christmas gift. It seems that a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I gave Bookie one of my national records from when I ran XL Modified. That’s right, gasoline! It was from the HDRA (before there was AHDRA) in Clarksville, Tenn. June 2, 1985 and signed by Red Roberts. This is the race that launched Hawaya Racing as a business for me. I don’t have much memorabilia from that time period, so it was an awesome surprise for it to show up on my door step. I will proudly hang it on the wall in our show room from now on.
Thanks Bookie, JV
