He went on to coach several little and minor league baseball teams as well as football teams. He undyingly enjoyed car racing, such as NASCAR, especially Sprint car racing, and spent over 12 years of the 80’s and 90’s at Skagit Speedway in the pits, which he referred to as, “the greatest place on earth,“ riding in the wrecker and push trucks. When he couldn’t be in the pits, Wayne would watch from the stands behind turn #4, where he has one day asked Dominique-1for his ashes to be spread. All you needed to do was just mention a sprint car, and you would witness his face light up with pure enjoyment.
