Portrait of Paul
Paul first came to Willow Springs International Raceway when he was fourteen and ever since then, it became something his dad and he frequented together. The car he drove “belonged to the two of them 50-50,” and they both ran it.
They ran an original Jack Roush NASCAR 1989 Race Car mostly at Willow Springs and at Sears Point Raceway, Sonoma, Northern California. Their car was the road course car for Scott Barton for 10 years; until he retired the car in 1999. The way it looks in the picture below was exactly the way it looked when it left Watkins Glen International track (in New York, USA) for the last time.
Jack Roush had many NASCAR teams and Paul’s car was a perfect Roush NASCAR vehicle. However, although he owned a NASCAR car, Paul was not a NASCAR racer. He only owned vintage cars and ran cars at race tracks “for fun.”
Paul suggested that anyone, “who wanted to come out to the track should come out because it’s one of the best things you could do and a lot of fun.”
