"In saw my first race in 1938. I was a 5 year old kid. My dad took me to see the races at the Goldman Stadium at 51st & Swope Parkway now called Satchel Paige Ballpark, and I thought car racing was the best thing I ahd ever seen. I have never changed my mind, becoming a life long race fan. The more I was around racing the more interesting it bacame. The people involved came from all walks of life. Being a people watcher from the time I 3weas a little kid, and maybe just a tad nosey, I enjoyed all facets of racing.
After I was grown, I became a race driver which put me in direct contact with race people. After observing many happenings, I was always telling some of my racing stories, people kept telling me that I should get some of these stories on paper. Ray Lee Gordon is a good story teller, I always tell people I got it from Ray Lee Gordon. Well, you know how us racers are, we hate to get out done by a fellow driver whether it be racing or story telling. So I got "Up on the Keyboard" and went to work." - from the author's introduction.
