Dick Mann even at his age had a firm grip and his hand felt like it had spent a lifetime (it had) wrapped around a piece of steel bar.
Dungey has HUGE hands, just huge. When you shake his hand and you're aware of it you feel your hand become engulfed in his. Not front page New York Times information but I got a kick out of it.
ps. Red Bull picked up $15 of everyones tab, excluding alcohol.
Very cool, flug!
Dungey has certainly made a fan out of me. I have stated before that, from an aesthetic point of view, he is my favorite to watch. His speed and lines and fluidity are like art, IMHO.
It is always nice to hear what racers are really like in a relaxed environment.
Thanks for sharing.
