jim's back and his shoulder have been effected. when i met him in 2000 he was tellin' me how he needed to get his shoulder flushed out(i think that's what he told me), and in 2005 one of the guys working with jim and aj told me jim's back was screwed up too. however, jim actually didn't officially retire until 2000, that's when he didn't renew his mtra driving licence. he had competed in a few races in 1998 as a substitute driver for the team, but that's the last time i've heard of him racing competitively. i think he may have done sme exhibition driving with #11 on junkyard wars back in 2001, but it may have been harkey(rip) driving. one thing is for sure though, i'm just glad jim is still with bigfoot after all these years, and i'm really glad i had the chance to meet him a few times, a real class act for sure!I thought it was Jim's back that finally made him stop driving after 1991?
