Out of the view - out of the mind.....what is going on here....

Did the Speed community forgot one of their greatest legend...a real hero....

just for you guys....

a couple days ago, on the 21. June....

Big "Al" Teague turned 76.....this was also the number of Betsy (his racer which he used with so much success)

Al is in a good shape and is enjoying his life with his wonderful wife Jane.

He is playing on Hot Rods in his workshop....and I have the hope that he will find the way to the salt for a visit, maybe this year, just to say hello (so as Craig last year)

I wished him the other day all the best and many repeats

Al....stay crazy and enjoy every day

Silently he overwhelms us. But when we get the message

we scream and shout for him .  Heros quietly accept our

applause. Happy Birthday, AL. Share the cake with Jane.

 Love Ya,

FREUD

Al stumbled upon the elixir of youth decades ago. . . to fill one's heart with hopes and big dreams makes for a fully loaded life.

Once heard, never can one forget that ripping sound as 76 thundered down the course. Geeez.

How was put? Oh yes. . . "Head's Up, Al Teague is on the way."  And then the pits halted, turned and watched as history went by.
