Great racer, great actor, great man...he had one helluva run.
A man seemingly great in every way. Has inspired me to do more many times.
"I don't rattle kid. But just for that I'll beat you flat."
He was such a gentleman. When I lived in North Carolina,...the town the road, Swansboro called Newman their adopted son. He vacationed there a lot and was never harassed by photographers or such. Just an ordinatary fellow.
Personally,..I loved him in Slap Shot.
I hope Newman Haas Lanigan racing keeps his name on it.
