I left Russell in 1984 and headed to California, where I was employed at a driver leasing agency. I was hired by Bridgestone/Firestone in 1987, and transferred to Nashville, TN in 1988. I was in the engineering dept, advertising dept. and the Motorsports dept during my 13 years with the Company. I traveled almost each weekend working with many racing series including SCCA, the Bridgestone Supercar Series, Firestone Firehawk Endurance Championship Series, Firestone Drag Racing, and Indycars. The Indycar series was the most intense. My direct responsibilies were tire security, display car programs, coordinating tire tests, ordering tires for various races from Japan, hospitality for BFS customers at almost every race, and alloting tickets/passes for our regional offices. I became friends with many people like Mario Andretti, Paul Newman, the Unsers, A.J. Foyt and many others.
After many years of extensive travel,I was burned out, so I returned to Rusell and purchased a Pest Control Company in 1999. Along with that, I also help my Father farm, and Barb and I are raising cattle and farming a little on our own. It will be great to see everyone at the reunion.
