Just read the interview of Lenny H. Sammons by Candy Dolin in the 3/30/21 edition of AARN.  In my opinion, a great article not only about Lenny but how his mom and dad started the racing paper even though, according to Lenny himself, they really didn't have a clue on operating a racing paper.  I had the opportunity to talk to Lenny at the 2019 Matheny School Christmas party.  You will not meet a better, more friendly individual! The article brought back memories of my mom, who first started buying the paper on weekly basis when she started going to Windsor in 1965.  I get to about 5 or 6 races these days but keep up with the local action through my AARN subscription, and through 3Wides Picture Vault (thanks Joe).  On another note, I used to complain about the car counts and the appearance of today's hot rods.  I try not to anymore and just appreciate what we have today as race cars and the remaining speedways left.  As "3Wide Joe" once said to me," Whether you think todays race cars are ugly or not, once they're gone, Saturday racing MAY be gone too".  Today's hot rods may go through minor or major changes but I sincerely hope they stick around for a long, long time.  I'm not done enjoying these guys making "bad-ass" left turns!    Scott Ely
