Many of our race fans have inquired about Winston's recent accident. He fell at a race in Dothan, AL, on Jan. 31 and suffered a severe cut to his head requiring stitches and a concussion. He also fractured a vertebra in his neck and is in a cervical collar for a couple of months. He will not be able to run in his race for the first time ever, and this is very upsetting to Winston. Please come out and show your support of our good friend Winston Howell. You can send cards to: Winston Howell, c/o Hartford Civic Club, P.O. Box 353, Hartford, AL 36344. Winston appreciates your concern and prayers for his recovery!
