Mr. Watts was the most gracious soul. He wanted everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy kart racing as he supported everyone at the various tracks he and his family visited through the years. We thoroughly enjoyed being around Mr. Watts and his family watching our sons grow and learn from the knowledge he presented to them about kart racing. His memory will forever be in our hearts for years to come. God Bless...

Mr. Watts started it all for us in racing, and he made sure we always had what we needed to win. We will be placing his name on our car above the passenger side window because we are sure he will be riding with us. God bless him and the entire Watts family.

I met Alton when I went to work at O'Neal Steel. He trained me the right way to tie my load down for trips local around town. Later I started a route to New Orleans, and if you needed directions he could just about put you right where you needed to be. I can say of all the people I've met thru the years Alton Watts would help anyone and everyone he could, he was an all around good hearted man and will be missed. God Bless You Alton Watts!!

I worked with Alton at CWRV, fine person to meet & to be called a friend. The road of life is not a neverending one, but may the road to the hereafter be straight & dry and may the wind be ever at your back. RIP.
