"On a personal note, Hope you have a great day and do tell Billy I said hello. He sponsored our softball team a thousand years ago. This team featured premium athletes such as Lamar Walker, Jimmy Gold, myself and others! Billy bought a case of beer anytime we won a game. I remember drinking much more beer than winning games so I imagine we took advantage of Billy’s generosity. Also…..on our shirts, the name Standridge was misspelled as Stanridge….leaving out the D. He was cool about it and still wrote the checks. That is your Dad…..just a cool dude."
Stacey Walker - shared March 14, 2014I can remember when I was about 5 years old going to work with dad on Saturdays because mom had to work. I would ride around with him in the wrecker to pick up cars. This was back when no one wore seat belts. I would sit in the middle of that old faded red truck and he would let me change gears, then he would let me control the lift on the back. No doubt about it, I was a daddy's girl, always have been.
Stacey Walker - shared March 26th Racing days
I have so many memories of racing days, but I remembered a quick one I could put on here tonight. Usually racing in Daytona meant being at the track for several days and we needed lots of people to help on the pit crew. Since most of the pit crew were volunteers some had to stay with us at a condo. One year there was so many that only needed a night or two because they would drive down the day before the race. They ended up staying in the condo and that meant that me and Deedra and Jody had to sleep on the floor. We ended up sleeping in a the walk-in closet. We were very young at that time and thought it was was pretty cool.
