Video: Dean Roper Final Interview

Matthew L. Lewis

Thank you for the good report on Mr. Mueller, Ron. Thats great to hear an update! Those #89 Evinrude cars have always been my alltime favorite paint scheme on a race car! I have never met the Muellers...or the Ropers...or Jim Sauter...but I did get to spend a day with Johnny Sauter a few years back when I was with a Curb Records artist. Even though I'm pretty far from their base (Atlanta) I have been a fan of theirs since I was 6 years old (1986).

Matthew L. Lewis

Yes, thank you Dean, indeed. So can tell the man's heart was physically broken by the death of his son just minutes before it was broken literally....R.I.P. to tthe Ropers...sure miss seeing the Mueller Brothers team at the tracks too.

Matthew--saw Jerry Mueller at the NASCAR K&N East race at New Smyrna in February and he looked great and we had a great visit. The Mueller Brothers with Roper were tough to beat on the mile dirt.
