  1. Hi Tim,
    I’m trying to connect with Sleepy Stevens. Do you know where he lives now? Or someone who does? I assume the Auburn area but I don’t know his formal first name to find him in the phone directory. I saw his name mentioned in the August 20 Placerville Speedway news article on line about the Forsberg win. Thanks for the consideration. Ken

    1. Hi Ken, Sorry it took so long for the reply. You may have already found Sleepy. I don’t know him but maybe someone will see this and comment.

      1. (sleepy) keith l stevens: hyw 49 by bell road: assisted living home auburn California. be quick he is very old.

        1. Alan, are you related to Keith? I found him through Tom Arbogast in Auburn. I visited Tom’s shop this summer (2016) and he showed me a lot of photos from when Sleepy raced as far back as the late 1950’s. What some great photos. You’ll have to connect with Tom to see them. I visited Sleepy while I was in Auburn. Guess what? He was sleeping when I stopped by.

  2. Hi Tim, I’m chair of Friendship Day, a yearly event put on by Mid Peninsula Old Time Auto Club, and I notice that your information about our club is not up to date. Could you let me know how to change it? I would also like to send you a copy of our flyer for Friendship Day 2012. Thanks. Bob.
