What I remember most about this particular visit was when Hank reached over to a bookshelf and picked up a vintage photo for me to examine. The crinkled, black-and-white snap shot depicted a couple of antique cars lined up to race each other on what appeared to be an old dirt road in the country. Fortunately, Sonny made good on his end of the bargain and excelled in school as well as in racing. He eventually grew up to own many race cars and even owned and operated a drag strip in North Carolina at one time before being inducted in into the North Carolina Drag Racing Hall of Fame. Piedmont Dragway no doubt has produced many similar stories of race cars being passed down from generation to generation and treasured memories accumulated as a result.
