Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

FORT WAYNE, Ind (FORT WAYNE’S NBC) – Old race car drivers and pit crews stop into the Tower Bar and Grill once a month, and during that time, they share stories. Some of the gentlemen joke about wins and losses, reliving their glory days.

“There are some races that I feel I should have won, that I gave a guy room, rather than crash. I feel like I should of stuck it in there and won those races, but I won my share,” Rocky Fisher said.

While photographs and track pamphlets circle the table, the group drinks coffee and eats breakfast. Between sips, Steve Wallace remembers the time he had with his father, who passed away after a wreck years ago.

EXTENDED INTERVIEW: Son recalls father, local hall of fame racer

“I started working for my Dad on a race car when I was 12 years old,” Wallace said.

Baer Field was home to a lot of these racers growing up, but now they hope the next generation can build the culture of racing in the Fort.
