George was a visionary, for sure. I'm glad I was able to get to know him.

Godspeed, George.
I might be lost, IDK 🤷🏻‍♂️

20 years from now we'll be shootin' the shit about the good ol' days when George ran the track here. I ran at MMP when he owned it, but didn't' know who he was 'till I moved up here.

He really is known in the drag racing world. Not until I had known of him for a while did I come to appreciate just how much he has done and how far reaching his work was.

I believe he was the originator of the million dollar race. Now "NHRA" might not have known much about him, but plenty of the small tracks new of him.
