Lee Herring Story

"Earl did a real good job and it landed him a ride in one of Gordon Herring's 170 Offy champ cars; the one that Johnny McDaniels had built for Bobby Ball to drive. It was a beautiful car.

One day at a sprint car race in Cannon City, Gordon was leading and Earl was gaining fast, as Lee Herring and Ethel Kouba were sitting in the stands. Lee turned to Ethel and asked, 'You don't suppose that Earl would pass Gordon, do you, Ethel?' Ethel said, 'Yes, I believe that he might if he can.' Lee explained, 'You don't pass the boss!!' Well, Earl did pass the boss and he lost his ride in the process."
