around the '83 season and gained a scored a few victories out of it. I still remember the
red shirts with the 65 streaming across the front that Barb Pursell (Scott's mom) sold at
the fan club stand behind the main grandstands. When I was 6, my father took me to the
Ridgewood Exxon to see the car parked at Rosco's garage. If my memory serves me
right, Andy loved cigars and I remember my dad bought him a box of Phillies and gave them
to him at the garage.
I was way too young to remember the 27jr days, so my first memories of Stan were the #2 Horton Sr. "Over the Hill Gang" car and this one. But this one will remain my favorite of all time. I always promised myself that when I buy my first car (to drive or own) that it'll be purple in color for Flemington and have this #65 on the side. Ploski Forever ! -

circle in the early 80's!
Stan had several frustrating rides at this time [remember the
"no frills" #114?] and was shut out of the winners circle for awhile. I
can still remember how he banged his fist on the dash of the Horton Sr #2 in turn one as
he was passed on the last lap of a 20 lapper and finished second!
|12/17/04||D.J. Everett||Not sure, but I think Stan's first outing in this car was opening night in 1983 for the Tri-Track 100 at Flemington where he won!! Unfortunately, that win came one race too late to keep his streak of consecutive years with a win as he went winless in 1982. Either way, Stan the Man will always go down in Flemington history as one of the greatest winners in the tracks history. Thanks for the memories Stan.|
