The 3 & 4 wide salute is just a lame knock off and demonstrates a lack of creativity in promotion. We need more showman and fewer politicians, across the board.
    That would not be fair to Jason, Chub, Terry Phillips, Bloomer, or Dennis Franklin. Someone like Kevin Weaver or Mike Hamerlee might have a heart attack.

    I think the first one I ever saw I was 8-9 years old it was at West Plains for the Show-Me, I'd like to say they had like 104 cars and they had them all out on the track doing a parade lap it was awesome. 4-wide all the way around the track pretty much. This would have been 1995 or 1996.
