The deacl

There is so much to Jim Naylor that no one knows about. Perris cut short the 7th annual wagsdash at an earlier than curfew 10:30 and informed me I wasn't coming back after a few yellows. Remember, some of my racers were inexperienced low buck drivers, so what would you expect. I was told sharply we wouldn't be coming back, so Mr Naylor, after several meetings and calls, agreed to give it a shot. We ran the next 12 Wagsdash events at Ventura. Jim went way beyond to make it happen. He created those big posters for the fans and autograpph cards. He made Wagtimes Legends of Ascot wear for the Grand Marshal each year and made the champion a great Championship jacket. The list goes on and on as he was what helped make that race succesful on his turf even as the attendance continued to drop. Jim is a strong leader and has been at Ventura for 30 some years! Thank you Jim for all you do!
