Great tribute and well said

I too have had the pleasure to meet and talk with Mel Kenyon and his brother. If Richard Petty is the king of NASCAR, then Mel Kenyon is the king of the midget drivers.

I have to tell you that as surprised as I was to find this on your blog, I am pleased to be reminded that Mel is more than just a treasure to those of us that are Indiana natives. In all of my life, I can't tell you how many times I've watched this master, but I can tell you that I never tired of seeing him win with dignity and humility always dedicating the win to God. I will always treasure the copy of "Burned to Life" that he autographed to me personally at South Bend Motor Speedway back in the day. Long Live the "King of the Midgets" and thanks Norris for a fine tribute!
