Foose Design Hot Hues for NASCAR's #24

Our family history and the stories handed down through many generations are replete with examples of engineering and design skills not always supported by the availability of formal education, but there nonetheless. In the coal country near Scranton, PA, long before the times of CAD and detailed designs based on drawings and slide rules, a family member designed and built a conveyor system for the mined coal coming out of the ground. The story goes that the design was done in the person’s mind more than on paper, and the construction accomplished entirely under his guidance.

The story below is about another member of the family, distantly related though he may be.
