PEOPLE N PITS
For whatever reasons, I hardly got any people n pits
shots but here's a few.
Spider Razon and Joe
With NHRA running the show, John
and Blake Bowser were all smiles, their work starts now getting
ready for the 2020 March Meet.
Don Ewald, Bob Muravez
and Tim Turner.
With his AA/FA on a boat coming
home from the UK, Randy Bradford had nothing to do but ham goofy
Two guys who go back
to Lions Drag Strip in 1964. Don Ewald and Larry Sutton.
Paul Sadler and Dave
Kommel acting like they know how to take pictures,
Joe Walla came onto the nostalgia
drag racing scene in 2010 when Dan Horan Jr. brought him on board
on his sponsor for the March Meet. Joe and his band were a big
hit over the weekend when he came out with all the trimmings
including a hospitability tent, all their stage show equipment
and several ladies who were very easy on the eyes.
The sponsorship was short lived
but Joe's love of drag racing wasn't. Over the last 9 years he
and his "Joe Walla Band" have been dubbed "the
racers band" and have drawn a huge following on and off
Catch him on Wednesday nights
on his Rockin' & Racing radio show on RadioBuzzd.com
So, not for the first time nor
the last, Walla and his band went all out to set up a full stage
in the pits of Famoso and proceded to entertain the 2019 CHRR
fans and racers.
Now for the back story. Over
the last couple of years elegible batchelor Joe Walla has been
seen in the company of one Sandra Reynolds. They became an item.
They became inseperable, the semis. So, what was the final round?
On stage the normally reserved Walla called up the equally shy
Reynolds and - you guessed it - he asked for her hand in marriage.
She gave him her arm.
Congratulations to Joe and Sandra
and their drag racing family wishes them a great life until the
chutes are pulled. ROCK ON
As seen in the race coverage,
there were BUGs everywhere.
Mike English was a bad
boy. Shoulda' been me.

Arlene Eliason, Don Ewald and Dan Kaplan.
Walla was very cool but so were
the girls of the CHRR. Leading off was Eily-Stafford Day, race
car driver, wife, mother and badass poster girl.

Alison Lee, if you don't
know, you're too young.
FRIED, DONE, SEE YA IN MARCH
Nostalgia Race Coverage like
this and more importantly the drag racing history on WDIFL will
cease sooner than later if racers and fans don't start supporting
WDFIL again. Thanks, Don
