  . . . Obituary

Sorry to hear of Dick Jerrett Jr's passing. I sure do remember him racing in the early days of the Supers. I remember the #67 he acquired from Dick Good. In it's day, it was one of the prettiest Supers of it's time. Gold in color, and just a great looking Super. It was the car that Ralph Denson destroyed a couple of times, later in it's life.
