Quite honestly, I don't know if you are correct or not.. I asked this question not knowing the answer. This is something I am curious about and could not find anything in the programs and books I have. I was guessing some one on this site would have the answer. Since no one else even took a shot at it I say have a cigar and enjoy it. Thanks, Jim

Sorry Mickey 12, it was not Fritz although Fritz was married to Randy's sister. His father in law was Sam Sauer. Jim

I left out the Arizona Midgets who brought great cars and drivers like Mark Passerelli, J.J. Yeley, Billy Boat, and Richard Griffin. Only a hand full of midgets still reside in Arizona currently. Terry Goodwin has not driven at Belleville for the last two years, but I know he loves the track and town as he graduated from Belleville High School.

And of course probably the best midget group in earlier years was the Badger group and I guess someone like my friend John Huss would have to comment on their situation. I don't feel qualified to speak for Badger or actually for any of the afore mentioned groups except RMMRA. And even some of their members may see it differently than I do. Jim
