  • At last: DICK SIMON!!!

    After begging folks for a book about the guy for 20+ years, after as much as volunteering to write said book myself, someone FINALLY has spent some serious time with one of my heroes, DICK SIMON...yes, he's on DINNER WITH RACERS! A two-parter, no less!

    Episode 1

    Episode 2

    Listen on the links above, or on your podcatcher of choice.

            Dick Simon, cool guy. Enjoyed his participation. I recall his short-sleeve white shirts and tie, and that he could turn on the waterworks at will.

              What passion he had, and ALWAYS smiling!

                  I'm sure he'll tell the story about how he and the Dick Simon Trucking guy both dropped each other's name as if they were one in the same to get something in return. And they had never even met!
                  (must have eventually to be able to trade the stories)

                    Ok, a little winter trivia; along with Simon, what other IndyCar driver was also a top-flight snow skier?

                      Dean Hall for sure did the super-G style skiing, I think Felix Rosenqvist did as well.

                        I haven't listened to Dick's yet. But the Boris Said one is hilarious. What he calls Paul Gentilozzi is fantastic.
