My sister's co-worker and her husband grew up around Hickory, NC...All their family knew a lot of the drivers when they were just kids - Dale Sr., DJ pumped gas back then, lots of stories.
She and her husband were taking a trip back to North Carolina from Georgia. Their 3-year-old grandson was in the car with them, singing, going up I-85 and she noticed the song he was singing was "The Star Spangled Banner." So she joined in. He'd seen enough races and heard the song until he knew it all the way through, except when he got to the end of it, he thought the last line was "Gentleman, start your engines."
