1976 Syracuse after the race.. Qual=3rd Finished =5th...Had a busy,busy couple weeks preparing for this event...A happy crew and happy driver...we were 6th with a lap or two to go and snuck under Sam Beavers between 3rd and 4th turn for 5th spot..Jimmy Horton was next in 4th but too far ahead...It was 100 laps that year and we pitted too late not knowing the fuel milage we were getting..Had to pass every car ahead of me as they all had pitted before me...Never passed so many cars ever...At I think 28 laps when we pitted and came back out there was still at least 30+ cars in the lead lap ahead of us...Most of my brakes had taken a holiday and the clutch was also trying to quit making me soft on the gas and that probably helped with saving the tires.....Lucky we finished...Seems like it was yesterday....Howie.
