Youthful interest in drag racing is what eventually led me to my career as a helicopter mechanic. Flying around in "broken" helicopters is very exciting and knowing how to fix them has been a rewarding way to pay the bills. The only racing death I have witnessed was Russell Mendez. That event left a permanent impression on me. My recent discovery of my 1975 Gatornationals photos was what prompted me to contact Mel, and forward my photo of the "Free Spirit".
