Favorite racing moment Winning my first race at age 18, the runner up complained that the tree didn't work right so they re-ran the final and I beat him again. Driving to Anchorage Alaska with Darrell Webb to put on an exhibition show. Arrived in town to see the posters saying "The Big Boys are in Town" Quarter Mile Burnouts!!!! Also running in Bakersfield at the Hot Rod Reunion 2009
Heroes of the sport Met John Force on a Flight to Edmonton, he was coming to a fund raising banquet for our new race track so visited and hung out with him on the plane. When I got to the banquet I was standing with a bunch of racers socializing when John walked up and said "Hey Cal, hows it going" you should have seen the looks on the faces of all my racing buddies
