Why won’t the Shiawassee County Fair give Rocky a chance?

Ironically, Rocky Hardcore Hauri is much better known at racetracks and county fairs outside his native Michigan.

Jim “Crash” Moreau, a.k.a. The Maine Maniac, gets the same shabby treatment in his home state.

Maybe it’s like that old tendency to NOT visit the most popular tourist attractions in your homestate — except when you are on a third grade field trip. We take for granted the treasures that lie in our own backyard.

Rocky tells his hometown newspaper, the Owosso Argus-Press, that he can’t get the fair or the local Owosso Speedway to return his phonecalls. Good for the Argus-Press for contacting the racetrack officials to ask why.

They got a wishy-washy answer, but at least Rocky’s now on their radar screen.

Meanwhile, the Flint Journal just had a blast hanging out with Rocky and checking out his needlepoint murals of his favorite stunts. As we’ve long maintained, Rocky’s needle skills deserve attention from Martha Stewart!
