Thanks for the information. I am curious if you have any other photos of Ray (or his car) and if not, if you might possibly know where I can find them?

Here's a pretty clean pic I took of his car on 5/3/14 at RPM Speedway (Crandall, TX). We were at his big shop in Forney on several occasions, but I'm not finding any other pictures at the moment. If I come across more I'll post them here.
Ray was a great guy. Down-to-earth, meat 'n potatoes type of a person and was fun to be around.
