Kenny "The Shoe" Shoemaker

   This online tribute to "The Shoe" was scheduled to be built in August 2001. The opening was moved up in honor of Kenny's crossing of the final finish line on March 22, 2001.

  Although I still have many many pictures and details to fill in, I wanted to get this shrine in place as soon as possible ... so, here we are.

   We old-timers remember The Shoe as one of racing's original bad boys that loved to put on a show. Whether you loved him or hated him, you respected him ... or he'd beat it out of you.

   You won't find a more in-depth look into the life of a dirt racing legend as his book "They Called Me The Shoe", which is still on sale. The Shoe had more stories about old times than Carter has pills.
