What Jimmy has done for Julia and her family is really something special and and I will even cheer for him at St. Clair, even if Reliable Carriers and JD BYRIDER are racing. Jimmy you are a great example of what is great, in this world and the OPA and you have a heart of Gold. I hope your good deeds rub off on others.

You are right! I still have Talk N Trash team shirt. I have it covered so it will not collect dust. I do wear from time to time when it is so hot outside! I gave him a lot of support because he recently moved up to Super Cat Class and he and Vince did really awesome job racing out there! I really want to thank Jimmy for doing this for Julia. It showed her a huge heart of what he did. Jimmy and I have been in touch frequently. Jimmy is a very good friend of mine and so is Tony from JD BYRIDER Racing. Whenever you go to watch them racing, be sure to cheer for them! They are tough to beat!!

I have never met the Talk N Trash team when they have Raced in St. clair but I now have a new team to root for. I have worked the race for the last 11 years. Jimmy and his team show what true sportmanship is. It is a way of life not just on the race course. Jimmy my hat is off to you sir. What a great story
