John Fitch Doing Very Well

I got a brief note from Bob Melhado to let me know that at age 94, famed American road racer, John Fitch, has made a spectacular recovery from a collapsed lung and the pneumonia that followed.  He had spent seven weeks in two hospitals, but now the “Old Man of the Rock” is now doing quite well, and enjoying a new chapter in his life living in a senior residence in Salisbury, CT.

    Anyone who’s hit those sand-filled drums instead of an expressway abutment owes this man something (Fitch barriers).
