You kids and your rumors! We're both to old to be racing with all of these young guys.

How it will go down Skipster? I'll tell ya. My prediction is that he'll come back to wrench for WG but realize Father Time catches up with everyone, including Ralph, and Mark will move on to the future of Blackkkketter racing...


his new protege':


baby drew





The rest of the story: Tormented by the mere thought of spending pit time with drew without the trusty "one-minute" timer drives Grumpy insane before the new team can even debut and he is reduced from master-mechanic to master-busboy at Goldie's Patio Grill.

I'm thinking that Grumpy's majic touch might be diminishing along with his advancing age.....................................I hear the Arkansas pinewood derby league is looking for a few good mechanics..................I have a really great tuning screwdriver he could use!

He just got his new Tri-focals. Bet that's why he thinks he can make a "come-back" I guess it all "Depends"

Right, Gramps?

I think this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black, in both of the above comments.

I see who my real friends are!
