    They were such a great couple. Him running the track, her running the kitchen I believe.

    To stay together that whole time, they were doing something right.

    Now they are reunited, hopefully dancing the night away.
    Hoping for the old Bloomer to return next year

    RIP - the Queen of Eldora is now reunited with the King. Safe to say there will never be another pair quite like them in the race track business.

    That is a big loss to the racing community. RIP to a very special lady.

    RIP Bernice. You and Earl did so much for dirt track racing.

    Cool story. When I was 5-6 years old, My Dad took me to an indoor go kart race. I think it was at Hobart Arena in Troy, Ohio. We ran into Earl and Bernice on the concourse, so Dad had to introduce me to them. Earl gave me a dollar bill out of his pocket and put his initials on it. He told me "next time you see me, show me this dollar bill. I will give you another dollar bill each time you do". I was too young to see how cool this was and I never did ask him for another. I had the dollar bill framed for several years. Then me being young and dumb, I took it out and spent it. Now being 32, it would be great piece in my man cave. Nevertheless, such a great memory of the Baltes family.

    Ha! My son did this for a number of years! The last time he did it he was about 13 or 14 and he went into the tower to get both him and Berneice to sign it. I have a bunch of pictures of it. Unfortunately like you, I can't find the that dollar bill anywhere now. Such a great couple! Those two were as much about my love for the place as the racing!
