dale quarterly lost his thumb in a crash and had his big toe grafted onto his hand to replace the missing thumb so he could continue racing.... :crazy:carlmorrell said:In 1992, I raced my first full season in WERA Southeast region.
Aside from all the also-rans, about 5 were go fast guys. Of which my Team-mate and I were 2 of the 5. Our biggest competitor, and off track friend was a guy out of the Atlanta area Walter Stovall.
At Roebling road, Walter decided to lube his chain, while the bike was running. You guessed it. He lost his thumb. This was bitter sweet for us, poor Walter, but then again one less go fast guy to worry about. We figured there would be at least a few weeks we would not have to worry about him.
Can you believe it, the next race weekend (1-2 weeks) Walter was back at it taking trophies. :dthumb: or should I say :thumbs:
