Auto Racer
    (January 3, 1932-August 14, 2005)
    Born in Columbia, Tennessee
    Birth name was Clifton Marlin
    Four-time track champion at the Nashville Speedway (1959,1962,1966-67)
    NASCAR driver (1966-80)
    51 top ten finishes in Winston Cup events
    Father of driver Sterling Marlin
    He ran his first race in a car he 'borrowed' from his older brother Jack (and using a driver's license borrowed from one of his cousins).
    He never won a NASCAR points race.
    He called drivers with sponsors, like Richard Petty 'hot dogs.'
    He was burned in a crash at the Nashville Fairgrounds, but competed the next week, heavily bandaged and driving a backup car.
    He was an early fan favorite, because he made himself available for autographs and photos after races.
    He was an independent, mostly self-financed driver, who had to sell a cow to raise the money to buy tires for a race.
    Fellow driver Richard Childress said, 'I'll tell you, he lived life every day having a ball.'
