    Damn well done, Bubbler. Its easy to forget just how many familiar racing names have gone out that way until you see em laid out like that.

    No JD McDuffie?

    And Jim Kelly, and it's not even close. Fusina and Flutie relied on running games, and Young didn't put up near the numbers Kelly did in the run and shoot. Hebert would be the No. 2

    No love for Preki in midfield? He put the Tacoma Stars on the map.

    I watched McDuffie die on TV. It was horrible. But he was a journeyman at the NASCAR Winston Cup level and isn't on par with many of those others.

    I suppose it was between him and Krosnoff, but Krosnoff's death (which unfortunately, I also witnessed on TV) was so horrid (his car vaulted off a stopped car on the street course at Toronto, cleared the catch fence and pulverized a telephone pole and tree) I had to include him. Definitely the worst wreck I've ever seen, and sadly, it killed a course worker too.

    Shouldn't Neil Bonnett be on that racing grid?
    A shame. One of the first guys I dealt with in that sport, he never forgot my name though he had no reason to remember.

    As for the wives: A friend of mine interviewed Mrs. Daulton during her Hooter's girl days and said she was surprisingly open about her marriage and its problems. And Mrs. Boggs gets a pass. Dude traveled for years with another woman and had some in baseball believing that woman was Mrs. Boggs. I'd run his ass over, too.

    There's still a huge chunk out of the tree that Krosnoff hit on the Toronto Indy course. I was there that day but sitting at Start/Finish. Greg Moore's wreck was horrific too.

    Oh crap. I cut-and-pasted Neil Bonnett to move him and never put him back.

    He should be in Tiny Lund's spot. Which moves Tiny down and eventually bumps Adam Petty.
