Dedicated to my late father and inspiration, Al Franks..  I race for him.  Although he passed on, he's still with me in spirit.  I think of him constantly. We did so many things together. Those days are gone forever.

The fine print:  I guess I should mention here that although I do devote considerable time, energy and some money to support GOTRA on these pages, this website is primarily to promote my Backyard Racing Team and the vintage racing scene I love. Any comments, editorial or otherwise are mine..... not GOTRA's.
