Funny story from that day.This was Rod Repperts 4th start in a Sprinter and 1st start with the open sprints (We ran URC). He told me before this heat "I'm a little unsure how hard I can go into the turns,I guess I'll just run it in next to the pole sitter who is it? I told him Van May,our old buddy Joe Connelly chimed in For Gods sake Rod don't do that!!! You'll both end up in the parking lot!!! Ironically Rod jumped the.cusion in turn one and hit the wall and we were done for the day!!. Sure do miss Rod and Joe.
