    I was thinking of Bill Yeager, my bad!
    Chuck Yeager, the pilot. He drove the pace car in '86 IIRC.

    Several days before the race they gave Yeager a private tour of the museum and the basement. 16 year old Kirk was in the basement folding t-shirts and counting post cards.

    That would be cool Kirk, I went to the Indy 500 once, time trials actually and met Al Unser and the Scottish Grand Prix driver (Same era) but I can't remember his name. We were in adjoining balconies watching the time trials. Al kept throwing his drink down on the guys below us because they were being too rowdy. I was young, too young to be served booze but Al kept slipping me his bottle and we got really stupid drunk. Got their autographs too, before they were both too drunk to write. Have them still somewhere around here.
    For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
    now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    My show package came in the mail today.

    Got two tables. It will be loaded with "milsurps", the very best guns at the show, i.e., stuff Kirk is cleaning out of his safes, it ought to be a sight.

    I'll be selling guns and doing a Gun Show Bingo card.

    '86? Don't remember the years from late 82 to '87 too well. Deployed and partially destroyed. I bet Chuck was a hoot for an old coot!

    Jackie Stewart was the other driver's name I couldn't remember in my story above….
