I was about 8 years old , When I started going to the races. I remember Hooker Hood, Thomas Runnels v-600, Bobee Palasini v8, Sam swindell 91, Sammy Swindell 191, and Jeff Swindell was a little boy then.. My dad started racing, Joe grissette v77, my brother Ricky Grissette , he had many numbers. Then Me, Cindy Grissette started racing, v77, and c-7, we all raced in the mississippi delta, then I moved to Spindale, Arkansas. I raced a total of 16 years straight. and loved it. Untill I had a reck, racing. I had to quit racing. Due to Disability, because of the reck.

This famous photo of Hooker racing at Riverside appears to be from the same year as your photo which (if correct) would date your photo "circa" 1965.

Wow. That brings back memories. My earliest recollection of Hooker was in 70. I was 5. Hangin out in the pits with my dad. I knew nothin about the superstitions of racing then. While dad was talking with Hooker, I reached in my pocket and pulled out a handful of peanuts. I thought I was gonna get my tail kicked. I never had peanuts at Riverside again
