Walt in the Curb records # 4

Walt won 9 CRA races in his career. He had 34 lifetime fast times and was fast timer 6 times in 1974 and broke the Ascot record in 4 of those races. Some of the champion drivers he put in 2nd place when he beat them were Eddie Wirth, Billy wilkerson, Jimmy Oskie and Dean Thompson. Pretty amazing, huh! His carreer was nearly 20 years, but apparently he didn't run for points. He was friendly when I met him and always signed autographs and talked with the fans. His last ride was Ford powered and it was a fast car. He is very missed by fans and racers alike.
