AutoWeek: 50 Years of Racing

Great Collection of Racing Memories by Editors, Writers and Photographers

"Mr. Petty," I asked earnestly, "why did you crawl out the driver's window instead of just opening the door?"

The King looked at me as if I'd grown a second head. "Boy," he said after a long pause, "you don't know much, do you?"

"No, sir," I said, "but I expect to learn."

Autoweek is one of my favorite subscriptions. The 50 year review has been amazing.

I've been an AutoWeek reader for the past few years - the 50th Anniversary issue was the best by a long shot.

Pete, all you need to do is hit a "all you can eat" . . . discount sushi restaurant . . . on a hot Sunday evening . . .

Come Monday, you'd be able to finish the unabridged "War & Peace"

I liked that one so much I read it in its entirety to the Mrs.....whilst sitting on the throne! I got to laughing so hard I could hardly finish the story.

Its a great thing that this writer would tell such a story on himself.
