I noticed the photo post of June 1st of an older man carrying small American flags to place by the tombstones for Memorial Day. The tombstone in the back had the name Boies on it. The name seemed familiar. There was a minor character in Bradford Speedway named Don Boies. He was a young man who was an auto shop student of Mel Austin and later a racer at the Speedway after Mel and Arlene took over the track. He later was killed in Vietnam. Mel gave an annual trophy in memory of him to the best racer.

Wes, I know you like to have fun with your readers from time to time. Was that tombstone in memory of someone named Boies who died in Vietnam as a Memorial Day tribute?

No. Boies was a name I grabbed out of midair for Bullring 2, but it's a common local name so you can tell what air I grabbed it from. But thanks for thinking about it. I take Memorial Day seriously.
