I always pulled for whoever drove the Wood Brothers' Mercury. First AJ Foyt, David Pearson and then Neil Bonnett. I followed Bonnett over to Junior Johnson's team when he drove the #12 as a teammate of Darrell Waltrip in the #11.

I didn't really watch the races while I was in the Navy from 1989 to 1994. I didn't own a TV the first year after I got out, but I was pretty upset by Bonnett's death at Daytona during practice in February of 1994. I finally started watching the races again in 1995 after I got a TV in the apartment, but never really pulled for another specific driver again.

Neil Bonnett was the last NASCAR driver to win in a car that had the #75 on it.

Sa-lute!!

The Gamecocks beat the Wichita State Shockers 73-0 on September 13, 1980, ten years after a devastating plane crash took the lives of 37 WSU football team members on October 2, 1970.

This is the fourth-highest total of points ever scored by a Gamecock football team in a single game.
