# 13 This pic was in front of the old Fairgrounds track in the 70's when I lived there. They built a new track over by the baseball stadium, then that closed and they went North of the city where only the weeds are the only thing there today, what a shame. The CRA raced there in the 90's

Benny was the first "name" guy I learned about when I moved to Tulsa in 1970 and started going to the dirt track races and watched race cars called Super Modifieds. He was my favorite driver in those days and was fun to watch. As I got into the world of dirt track races there, I soon learned about Benny, Emment Hahn, Harold Leep, Jackie Howerton and a lot of other famous drivers that were there running each week. I quickly learned alot about the midwest drivers from Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma who showed up on Fridays and I fell in love with the Supers. It was cheap to go as the local Get n Go convenience stores had discount tickets for $ 3, so I shopped there every Friday. When I married Mrs Wags and got back to California and went to Ascot, I was preprogrammed to love those sprinters as soon as I saw them. Benny had a lot to do with my loving dirt track racing and then Jimmy Oskie's blue car sucked me in at Ascot and look where that got me! It all makes my head spin because it must have been in the cards to follow that dirt road as I had no idea what was coming. Looking back, I'm pretty happy I got those cards and followed along my path to today.
