Personal travel note: The previous night, I had covered the Winston Racing Series feature at Antioch Fairgrounds Speedway in California. The night before that, I was in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for the Winston Racing Series Yankee Dirt Classic at Hawkeye Downs Speedway. The weekend trip was my Boeing experience, as I flew on a version of every jet – 707, 727, 737, 747, 757, and 767 – they had in the air at that time. In about 60 hours, they got me to three different race tracks, three distinct time zones, and three green flags, including the noon start at Dover.
