ROLL OFF 13th ON THE GRID.>>THANKS SO MUCH. EARLIER THIS WEEK THE NASCAR COMMUNITY LOST ONE OF THE GREAT ONES. DONLEVY WAS BELOVED AND GAVE SO MANY DRIVERS THEIR FIRST SHOT BEHIND THE WHEEL. ONE OF THOSE DRIVERS, OUR VERY OWN WALLY DALLENBACH. HE SAT DOWN WITH DUNLEAVY IN ONE OF OUR “PRIDE OF NASCAR” FEATURES.>>I DO KNOW ALL THOSE GUYS, AND WE DIDN’T HAVE WHAT IT TOOK TO BE COMPETITIVE WITH THEM. SO I TRIED TO MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF GOING TO THE RACES, AND THAT WAS HELPING THE YOUNG DRIVERS COME ALONG.>>WHAT ABOUT THAT DID YOU FIND PROBABLY THE MOST SPECIAL?>>TO SEE THEM GET A SHOT AT RUNNING AND KNOWING THAT ONCE THEY GOT A GOOD SHOT AT IT, THEN THEY WOULD TAKE OVER THE BIG CARS, THE ONES THAT REALLY HAD THE MONEY. BUT WE RAN ON SUCH A LITTLE AMOUNT THAT — AND I KNEW HOW TO HANDLE IT. I KNEW WHAT WE HAD. AND I KNEW HOW FAR WE COULD GO.>>I THINK THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT DEFINITELY OWE YOU A LOT OF THANKS FOR HELPING THEM AND GETTING THEM STARTED AND YOU NOT ASKING FOR ANYTHING IN RETURN. SO I CERTAINLY THANK YOU. I’VE HAD A GREAT TIME.>>WELL, I CERTAINLY OWE ALL OF Y’ALL A THANK-YOU, TOO, BECAUSE YOU REALLY MADE LIFE VERY, VERY NICE.>>HE WILL BE MISSED. AFTER MAKING THE NUMBER 90 FAMOUS FOR SO MANY YEARS, JUNIE
