1988 was the year and October marks the month when my friend invited me to go to my first NASCAR race at Rockingham. From that point on I was too cheap to buy race tickets. Within a year I was covering NASCAR for the Nestle- Danville newsletter. At the time we had drivers Chuck Bown and Jeff Gordon in the Busch Grand National Series.
Later I did photography for Winston Cup Scene and Speedway Scene magazines. At the same time I was working for WBTM and we started the show NASCAR Profile. We decided the show would work better on WAKG and renamed the show NASCAR Noise.
