Car & track ower Pat Patrick. Loved racing almost as much as food. When his driver
won the feature he was awarded $130. If LeeRoy Yarbrough was the winner that was
only worth $90 & usually resulted in a fight. LeeRoy was a roughneck & not very good
with his fists !!!!
Fun days gone forever...
One of many cars owned & sponsored by Pat Patrick.

A "skinny" Pat. Ran and sponsored cars on the Daytona beach/road course.

Didn't end well for the 16. That's the third/fourth turn at the old Speedway Park
in Jacksonville .Very common for that fence to be knocked
down and nailed back up after every race.

Trivial but true. Pat had a son that went to Forrest Highschool with my older sister.
He was tall and skinny and came over on to our house in Jacksonville. My sister was
very attractive !!!
