Read a comment about driver/sign guy Joe Zuczek that disclosed he is related to Stan Ploski. Never knew that.
Makes me wonder. If you think of all the guys in this area that had sign shops, how many of them were a direct descendant of racers? Another angle on this is how many got their start lettering race cars or wanting to letter race cars.
In the northeast, I would wager that it could be a ratio of 1 out of 3 sign shops have a tie to racing in some form or another - and especially those that are related or have a direct relationship with a driver.
