Note from Gene Steele at Bloomington Speedway. I caught a 2 year old just before it it the ground. I saw the kid falling from the stands and reached out and got its left arm and was able to get my hand behind its head before it it the concrete. It happened in an instant. There was a gasp from the crowd and lots of attaboys, The mother was in tears, the kid cared less.  Someone shouted "not bad for a old guy"! I shouted back that I wasn't old, just well worn. With reflexes this fast why did I ever stop racing?
