sadly it will be a day i will always remember i got the call from my freind harry at martinsville the we lost richie. it did not seem possible not richie not the greatest modified driver to ever get behind the wheel. he was also a great gentelmen who always had time for the fans, met richie at the tudor inn in the poconos just a down to earth guy who would drink a bud with you and a big smile. jusy my opionion but i really think the tour has never gotten over the lost just like nascar never got over losing dale. if you did not get to see richie race you missed something very very speacial. to this day nobody comes close to being as good as richie. peace my freind.
