Returning to Our Roots at George Ray's Wildcat Racetrack

Tom standing near George Ray's roadster

Tom attended a reunion race held at the historic George Ray's Wildcat Dragstrip in Paragould, Arkansas.  The dragstrip opened in 1961 and Tom raced there in 1961.  It has not changed much and still has racing "every Sunday,weather permitting." He is standing by George's old roadster.  To be the real top dog, you had to beat George in his hand built roadster with a 400+ cubic inch Oldsmobile motor.  The car did not weigh anything and George didn't either!
