The Beer City Bruiser was a guest on WINCLY this week. During the appearance, he discussed training under Harley Race and recalled a story of Race and Terry Funk throwing darts at customers in a bar. Here’s his recount of the story:
We were at a bar and Terry Funk was in town. In Missouri they don’t seller certain Miller Lites so I was drinking Coors Lites because Terry Funk was. The three of us were kinda getting tipsy so B.J., Harley’s widow and Terry Funk’s wife left. Harley goes, ‘Now we can turn it up!'”
Race’s definition of ‘turning it up’ was to grab the darts from the dart board and start throwing them at other customers in the bar. It turned into a competition to see who could hit the most people with a dart.
People would look and see it’s Harley and they wouldn’t care. He was such a good guy that they would laugh it off. I couldn’t believe it that we were throwing darts at people and they were laughing.
