Roger was just a simple country man with a passion for engineering/mechanics. His reputation on the racetrack was the Boss! He won many trophy’s and respect in the field of mechanics and racing. He was before his time! He engineered and developed a special gas flow carburetor for better mileage and performance in the sixties. The industry still uses this technology today. His reputation and victories on the track are still remembered. But his greatest victory was his Salvation. He has driven his last lap, his race is over. He now is home with the Lord.

I knew Roger Thompson in 1970..... to me he was a special person. One day, Me and George Allen Wilds, and Roger Thompson, when to Louisville, Kentucky, in my car, to do some drinking and having some fun. After midnight we headed back to Paris, Kentucky. I was so drunk I could not see straight, I ran the car off the road into the grass........, and a police car pulled in behind us. We all three got out of the car and talked to the Policeman. I couldn't stand up, Roger and Allen were holding me up......Roger told the Policeman that He would drive the car home, and there would be no more problems. The Policeman said OK and left. Roger dove us on home to Allen's home in Paris, I passed out all the way home. I think Roger saved my life...If I had continued to drive I would have maybe killed everyone......... Yes Roger was good to me........ When I got out of the Marine Corps in 1973, I lived with Roger Thompson and his wife Marietta, for a short time.......He treated me like a brother.... I felt like family and I have nothing but good memories of Roger...... I knew Roger's dad and mother and sisters, I loved them all. May Roger Thompson Rest in Peace....I wish Roger the BEST.......Forever.......... ..Raymond Wells
