The gentleman who crashed very hard a Spencer Speedway 4th turn a few years back that damaged his eyesight?  Did he make a full recovery?  Thanks.

I got my new issue of 'Dick Berggren's Speedway Illustrated' magazine in the mail yesterday. I was browsing through some of the columns, and writer Bones Bourcier titled his "Nobody Asked Me, But..."... In the column, he asked several questions, including, "Has anyone seen Maynard Troyer"?


Maybe we can fill him in.....

There was a thread asking where Maynard was not long ago, but it was taken down. Any idea why, Mike?

This thread needs reviving, so wondering about a few more guys...Billy Taylor?  Bill Cain? Wild Bill Henry?  Dick Reagan?  Dave Kotary? Wes Moody? Dick Nephew? Neil Tooley? Bill Blum?

Wild Bill Henry is still living in the same house on Glenwood Ave. in Oneida that I use to stay at as a kid when his wife, Janice, would babysit me.

    When Late Models use to run at the old Shang. I'm having a hard time trying to remember the first name of the a driver that ran that class I do remember the last name being Jackson ... Was his first name Dave ?????    The last car I remember him in back in 2001 was a Orange colored car number 77 I think ....  Then I do believe he tried to run the Sports Modifides with the same number ..... Is he still around running or retired

Dave Jackson is still around. He owns a body shop/ repair business in Newark Valley. Did race a b-mod a few times a couple of years ago at Shang 2.

Kirk Rutherford who was injured at Spencer Speedway some years ago is around helping others and had Pete Brittain in his #11 Modified last year. He has hung up his own helmet.
Billy Taylor is with a NASCAR Nationwide Series team the last that I knew.
Dick Nephew passed away in 1996.

Dave Jackson ran both late mods and b-mods but was #99 or #1...(usually black cars)....you may be thinking of either Kirk Abbott OR Scott Brady?...they both ran #77 in late mods and b-mods as well.....and I believe Brady's was def. orange color before....
 
    DAVEY DENTON #3 MONROE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS WAS A WEEKLY RUNNER THERE.
        HIS CAR REALLY HAD THAT LEAN TO THE LEFT LOOK. I BELIEVE HE WAS A DAIRY FARMER??
