Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 32: Slick The Fish

Slick the Fish, running Buell colors.
Tom Halverson of Pit Pass Radio ( sent in this photo of his pet fish, and a note:

"Attached is a picture of Slick the African Cichlid (or fish for short). Slick was named after Danny Eslick back when he was riding the yellow and black Buell.

"I am Slick’s human. Slick eats a lot, and his fishtailing swimming style is very similar to Danny Eslick’s riding style.

"We reside in McGregor, Iowa, and I took the photo of Slick."
