    Very cool story, thank you for sharing it Jay. I've always wanted to know more about Otto Crocker after seeing his name, and reading the small story about him in the The Birth of Hot Rodding - The Story of the Dry Lakes Era.

    It's no doubt that "The Clocker's" positive impact on these sports of ours cannot be over stated. Nothing short of revolutionary.

    A good one.
    Yet another pioneer rightfully honored.

    You're in a "Bonneville mood" these days. I can like that. :)
