Being a Georgia boy all my life and growing up watching dirt track ovals and NASCAR races, it was a strange experience when I attended a race in 1970 at a new track called Road Atlanta. The cars were really different and the track was unique in every way. So many places to watch from and the speed was amazing. I still have the 1st event program from that race. My favorite driver was always Peter Gregg, he had to be the fastest every time on track and l don’t remember seeing anyone outrun him. I have attended every Petit Le Mans and always look forward to the next. The event is truly unique and the schedule is perfect for race fans. I always collect the posters for the event and my office is covered with framed posters. The autograph session is my favorite fan activity; I have a signed helmet from last year’s event in my home. Keep up the good work.
