 Other Interesting Team Information
I chose the number 85 because it was my grandfather's number, which was retired back in 1966 after his death in a car accident on 12/28/1965. He was Points Champ at South Sioux Speedway, and in the Top 10 at Columbus consistently. A Sportsmanship Award in his name was given to Riviera drivers for many years after his death. I wish I could've met him in person, but I know he'll be watching me proudly. If I can be half the driver he was, I'll be happy!
