  1. I remember watching Tony J. race at Stafford with the tour. Unfortunately I was there on that tragic night. We were sitting in the front row of the pit stands in turn 1. His throttle hung open, you could hear it over the other cars. He hit directly in front of us. I remember someone saying he’s gone, and we left the stands. I’d only seen one other death at the track, Dave Feroni at Riverside, again a hung throttle. Shortly after Tony’s death Bodine invented that throttle break. Who knows how many lives that saved. I hope I never witness another on track death, and wonder what Tony would have accomplished, but for that tragic night
