Fence story from Reading:  I know I mentioned this before but......


Back in the flathead days, I am thinking 1961, I was sitting in the first turn with my Mom, Dad & sister.  Those may remember that the 10 foot fence ended somewhere near the front entrance and just the green short fence went from there to the first turn.  Well, over & over, Warren announced to get back behind the yellow, 10 foot line once racing started.  What I did was run down to the wall, climb up & hook my shirt over the green fence and started yelling "help, I'm stuck".  Well my sister (she was 12 years older than me) ran down, grabbed me and took me back to my parents.  My dad slapped me.  I did get the "you could have been killed" lecture, but I' will tell you, it was really great to be that close to the action, even if only for a minute.....
