Norman "Bubby" Jones is without a doubt a hall of famer at the top of the list and in my top 2 best drivers of all time, Lealand McSpadden being the other. Bubby won 2 CRA championships with 81 CRA victories and an unknown total of wins back East before he came to California. I tried to research his wins years ago talking with family and Larry Henry, but no one kept a list as he was barnstorming the country for years. He was very patient, to a point, as he moved to the front and occasionally a little tap let them know he wanted by. Watching the Dean and Bubby show was amazing, but his Ascot years were much of the same. Unlike today with fewer heros, in his racing years there were a lot of heavy hitters racing against him, and he prevailed a lot! I only wish I could have seen him at Eldora as a young man as he said it was his favorite track for many years. Bubby's warmth gave me a great feeling as I knew I was talking with a giant in our racing, yet he gave me alot of his time and I still revel in those times with him.

Not being much of a collector of racing things because everything I collected went to make money for the low buck teams, so the time passed me by and I had very few things on my bucket list for me personally. Yet the three most desired items were always helmets from Bubby, his son Tony and Lealand. Tony made that happen for me last year thankfully, but I never even asked my two heroes, it wasn't the right time and now time has passed. But the memories I have of Bubby on the track are pretty well still planted in my memory, so I only need to sit back and roll the saved scenes thru mu mind, and I'm happy with that.
