  • September 27, 2007 & 2008

    It was on this date, September 27, 2007, when one of racings finest left us.

    Nick Fornoro Sr... Died ... Nick was the American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) driving champion in 1950, and he was the first NASCAR Midget driving champion in 1953. After retiring, he went on to be one of the best starters (flaggers) ever, starting out here in the Northeast and eventually ending up as the flagger for two hundred consecutive Championship Auto Racing Teams Indy Car Series races (CART), serving in that position from 1979 to 1992. In 1993 he was the honorary starter for the Indianapolis 500.

    And another left us a year later, September 27, 2008 - - actor/driver/business man Paul Newman at 83
