MOUNTAIN OYSTERS

“Racing lost a true competitor when Junior Johnson retired.  He was a go-or-blow driver and as a car owner, he had some teams that were almost unbeatable.

I remember going to Junior’s for a cookout one time when we were racing at nearby North Wilkesboro Speedway.  They had mountain oysters and plenty of moonshine whiskey.  I wasn’t familiar with mountain oysters.  I ate some, which had been grilled or fried like chicken. They were delicious--until I found out that they were hog nuts.”
