Today I want to ask my readers to have positive thoughts and prayers for my old friend Joe Jacono. Some folks may remember Joe as the owner/driver of the famed "Rollin' Stoned" '73 Barracuda Funny Car back in the 1970's. Joe has a long and colorful history in the sport of drag racing that predates the "Rollin' Stoned" flip-top period. Joe even drove dragsters before getting into the Funny Car scene... Right now Joe's experiencing some serious health issues in the hospital related to his heart, and he could sure use some good vibes sent in his direction. Below is a video still from several years ago, when yours truly (left) was interviewing Bob Rosetty (middle) and Joe Jacono (right) at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park. This was when Rosetty convinced Joe to come out of retirement and once again drive the restored "Rollin' Stoned" at E'Town's prestigious Old Time Drags event. Let's all send Joe our telepathic good wishes. Lots of us 'round here love the guy and want to see him get better...
