Leah's Grandfather's name is Ernie the Wrench Maynor. While never winning a championship at Islip, he did win 9 races at Islip in what would have to be considered the Most Competitive fields of Figure 8 racing history, and was always near the top of the points standings. Sadly, Ernie left us in 1982.

Sounds great Hank, would love to see you in Bay Shore again .
Please keep in touch.

We will be racing enduros at Riverhead again this season.

We go back a long way , I was 17 years young when I drove the 03 figure 8 car that Ray and I built in Farmingdale. I was with him for many years and built several with him . That was 29 years ago when you gave me chewing gum to calm my nerves the first race.

Hope to catch up with you this summer.

Kenny
