Thought I would introduce myself, my name is Tom. I live outside of Portland Oregon in a town called Sandy, and I'm 55 years old. I grew up in Southern California and some of my earliest memories are my family packing up and heading out to Riverside to camp in the infield by the esses! In the early seventies my parents both raced on a track in Irwindale called Speedway 605. I've also been to a few races at the old Ontario Speedway, one time I swear they had Indy and NASCAR on the same track on the same day and it was called the Datsun Twin 200s. Maybe it was on two different days, can't really remember for sure. I'm a Chevy guy, was a Jeff Gordon fan, wasn't a big Earnhardt fan but respected the hell out of him. And on that note I think it is cool that the three is back, I'm a Raider fan also and the Raiders don't retire numbers they keep them so the present players can pay all message to those who came before them, and I feel the same way about the number 3 and even the 43 still being in use. You'll get to know me better as I start posting and participating in the back and forth with everybody, I look forward to that! I will say that I always try to be respectful and won't say anything on the internet that I wouldn't say to somebody in person. See you all in the racing thread!
