Some of the smartest people I have ever met were drag racers. The cream rises to the top in competition. Grump knew a lot. Had the respect of the best engineers. He would have been succesful at anything he attempted.

I think he was completely self taught. The first time I saw
offset wrist pins on a motor was on one of his builds. He
had an innate intuitiveness like Burt Monroe. I saw him in the
pits at Cordova Il. once. If his behavior there was typical
he earned the “Grumpy” nickname.
