Favorite racing memory occured last year, in our final championship race in Cortez. While mingling with the fans, after the main, a young Grandfather said to his 3-4 year old Grandson, "That's Tom Gallagher. He drives the yellow car you like." The boy was very excited, and I shook is hand, and signed his program. The Grandfather went on to say again, "That's Tom Gallagher, and you'll want to remember that name".
It almost brought tears to my eyes!
