September 05, 2017 "Buddy and I became roommates at Camden Military Academy in Camden South Carolina in 1957. Early 1958 his father Buck moved to Spartanburg South Carolina two brother his racing career. I worked a few races with Buddy and his dad. In 1959 I went in the United States Marine Corps and served nine years. When I got out I went to work with Mario Rossi in Spartanburg South Carolina. At that time Bobby Allison was driving the 22 Dodge Charger which was sponsored by Dodge. I would see buddy at different tracks from time to time. But it was quite a character and we shared some good times together. Big guy may you rest in peace I think of you often. May God bless your family and keep you cradled in his arms. Your pal Jim Smith Spartanburg South Carolina."
