We’ll start out with a bit of a stretch in relevance to Bullitt County.
However, those stock car racing fans in the area will remember Andy Hampton. And I know Bullitt County has a whole lot of stock car fans, especially during the era when the weekly races were held at the fairgrounds and then at Louisville Motor Speedway.
He was one of the first big-time racers from the Louisville area to make it in NASCAR. His best finish at the Daytona 500 was ninth.
Hampton died at the age of 87 on April 1.
