Spot Light: From the Fans

Jock Ellis - Atlanta Region Member 1966-1974

Being the owner of a race track apparently didn't mean much to a hotel near Sebring. In 1970, after the Friday races, Earl Walker and Charlie Earwood were standing somewhere near the racetrack with worried looks on their faces when I saw them and asked what was wrong. They had gotten to the hotel late, Earl said, and found that their reservation had been given to someone else.

I told them not to worry; that my Aunt and Uncle would let them stay at their house in Avon Park. Nice of me to volunteer their home!

So, they followed me to my relatives. The next morning, my Aunt made a big breakfast for everyone and they went on their way.
