The caption under the newspaper photo reads “Raymond Yedding is only one of the many Wayne county boys working on their entries for the Wayne County Opti-Derby. The local Optimist club is sponsoring the event to be held on West Main Street near Clear Creek park on August 21.”
Ray’s love of cars and working on them started at a young age. This car(t) was made from a crate.
Did Ray win? You’ll need to ask him.
