I well remember the day that "Fireball" was involved in the wreck that would ultimately take his life. My older brother was a big race fan and we were listening to the race on the radio.

I also remember the day he died. He was my favorite driver and it was very upsetting to me.

But the greatest thing was when I met his widow, Doris Roberts. It was quite a few years ago during Autofair at Charlotte Motor Speedway. She was probably around 65 or 70 years young at the time. She was still his biggest fan and was excited to talk with folks that remembered him. She was with some of the guys in the Pontiac Club.
