Long Time Flemington Speedway Official Wendy Kennedy Passes
Flemington Speedway's Wendy Kennedy signs the "Who's Who of Flemington Speedway Tire" at a Flemington Speedway Historical Society event.
Very sad news has reached us of the passing of long time Flemington Speedway Official Wendy Kennedy.
Those who were fortunate to have known Wendy will tell you, that nobody had more "Flemington Speedway Spirit" than her.
Wendy was a long time official, but more than that, she had a love and an excitement for the speedway that was greater than anyone I have ever met. She also always had the respect and admiration of all who knew her....
She didn't just work at the speedway... She lived it.
Our condolences to the Kennedy Family and friends of Wendy Kennedy.
It's Feature Time...

Bob Drayton (Father of Modified Racer Bobby Drayton) Passes
Bob Drayton with his son Bobby in victory lane at New Egypt Speedway in this 2010 photo.
Very sad news has reached us of the passing of "Mr Drayton" (father of modified racer Bobby Drayton).
A big supporter of his son's racing since the Street Stock days at East Windsor back in the 90's, Mr. Drayton was always a big supporter of the speedway events through his "Mr Bob's Portable Toilet Rentals" business, including sponsoring nights, billboards, and other events throughout the racing season.
At some point a few years ago when I was helping out at New Egypt Speedway, Mr. Drayton approached me with the idea that drivers who won features should be given a checkered flag. "The winner should get a flag.... Something they can keep and have for the future." I agreed that it was a great idea, but that we'd need a sponsor to support the idea. Not long after that, the Drayton Team showed up with a big box of checkered flags to be given out to each feature event winner for the balance of the season and beyond.

Racer Bobby Drayton said of his father, "Pops got me started in racing. He was my biggest fan."
We send our sincere condolences to Bobby and Sherri, and to the family and friends of Bob Drayton.
Relatives and friends are invited to his viewing from 9 a.m. to 12 Noon on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Bradley & Stow Funeral Home, 127 Medford-Mt. Holly Road, Medford, N.J., where a Memorial Service will be held on Sat. at 12 Noon.

Jim was involved in all aspects of racing, and was a wealth of knowledge for those who were fortunate enough to know Jim, and to have a chance to talk with him. Jim was also a big supporter of the Matheny Christmas event each year, and a frequent visitor here on our Message Board.
We, along with the entire racing community, will miss our friend Jim.
We send our condolences to the Grbac Family, and the many, many friends of Jim Grbac.
