I’m not registered, however I thought I would pass along some racer nicknames that I and others used over the years at Woodhull and Dundee as well as other venues.

Hough the Magic Dragon.  Lin Hough   (Gary Montgomery)

The Risingville Rocket.  Eddie Mills Jr.

The Flying Squirrel.  Terry Hough

Captain Quick.   Curt VanPelt    (Montgomery I think)

The Flyin Lion.    Doug Howard

Stunning Frank Dunning    (Ryan Kennedy)

Dick in the Dirt.  Rich Karlnoski

The Wild Child.    Lyle Sherwood

Gilzilla.   Gil Tegg

The Flyin Milkman.   Kenny Moore

I know there are a million others but these are just a few that come to mind.

Stay safe and healthy.

I raced the #06 super stock at Spencer and Tioga for 10 years and only got a picture of my car in the Gator Racing News one time,and would,nt you know they got my name wrong by a mile.I then became known as Dick Dirk.I said how in the hell do you get Dick Dirk from Dennis Diak.I also had "MONGO" on my car which is a nickname I got from playing the game of RISK and I controlled the whole board except I forgot about MONGOLIA and lost the game.
