Scruggs Memorial Auction Reminder

Last week I posted this item about the Bobby Scruggs Memorial Foundation fundraising event to be held at the Martinsville Speedway. A reminder, it is tonight at 6:00, tickets are $35.00 ($20.00 of which is tax deductible). Unlike tickets for the Nextel Cup race on Sunday, which has sold out, these tickets are available at the door.

Today in the Roanoke Times, Aaron McFarling has this:
"Professional sports officials, if they are lucky, are largely ignored. If they are remembered at all, they are remembered for the call they blew, the outcome they changed, the season they wrecked.

Bobby Scruggs is an exception."
If you didn't know Bobby, make it a point to read this article, he was not your typical "referee".

If you can't make it to the combination auction, autograph session, barbecue event, go to and see what all you'll be missing.
