I just got reminded of something and I had share.... One night Mickey Thompson was talking about how he modeled the stadium races after a three-ring circus. He had the Grand National Sport Trucks, the full-bodied Ultrastocks, the open-wheel cars and then the Honda Odyssey's were the clown act. I couldn't stop laughing when I heard that.

I worked for Mickey and Trudy, and it really was like life under the big top! --Barbara
