Sad week in Pa.

a week that began w/ the passing of legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno ends w/ the passing of another legendary Pa man. Today the owner and operator of Pocono Raceway Dr. Joe Mattioli has past away. Doc was a great man, so nice, down to earth, and friendly. I had the pleasure of meeting him during the media picnics they had every July/August w/ my Uncle for about 9-10 years. Doc would sit w/ us and chat like we were friends for life. Not only did he along w/ his wonderfull wife Rose do alot for the sport of NASCAR, he did alot for the Pocono mountains through his philantropy. He will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Doc Joe
