Sad news, I had the pleasure of hearing Ronnie "stirring grits" . Takes quite a bit of skill to dab the clutch, with your right foot planted on the floor with two 4's on a Hemi, with out sprouting push rods through the hood, or leaving a nasty mess on the track. I always thought he might have some musical aptitude because of the way he worked the "tree", the yellows at that time were exactly 1/10th of a second apart,and if you could keep "tempo" you could cut a good light. Hard to believe that was thirtysome years ago.
He was one helluva racer and a great guy. To us Mopar guys, he is one of the great drag racing legends.
That's tough to hear. The Sox & Martin super stocks were always one of my favorites.
Is Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins still alive? He was another top fave.
Alive and well.
In fact, he's still playing around in Pro Stock, building engines for notables like Jim Yates.
Gotta love the Grump! I'm glad to see him on Sundays.
I was very saddened to hear about Ronnie. What a legend...
