    Hopefully this makes it to Dave Wilson.
    Thanks for sending this one out to everybody. I knew Sammy as a kid growing up. My uncle was Russ Dowden and he would take me up to Rufus Gray’s house and I knew many drivers including Mario, all who drove the Gapco Spl.
    Thanks again,
    Jim Williams
