Why indeed, when Hartman has already decided, beginning with the Charlotte 500 on Oct. 5, to "get some prestige by racing down South." With Steve Luallen, a first-rate mechanic, and an increasingly professional operation Butch says he is ready to compete in the NASCAR races that were once too expensive and too distant for his small independent team. Confident that "I can drive with Petty and the other NASCAR drivers, without a doubt," he hopes to one day reach a simple but elusive goal.

"When I get through racing and someone brings my name up in a beer joint," Butch Hartman says dreamily, "I want to be remembered as one of the best." Then, pausing for a moment, he adds, "Heck, right now I'd settle for just being remembered."
