Legendary Car Owner Paul Deasey Passes

Car owner Paul Deasey (right) next to driver Gerald Chamberlain.

Word has reached us of the passing of legendary car owner Paul Deasey. 

Paul raised the bar in the 60's and into the early 70's with his "Big Donkey" stock cars.  While Paul had many of the best drivers of the day behind the wheel of his powerful modifieds such as Al Tasnady, Gerald Chamberlain, Stan Ploski and many, many more, the cars always had the attention of those in the pits, and those in the stands.  To this day, when you think of iconic modified stock cars, for many, the Paul Deasey owned #707 will always be at the top.

Some additional information on the man, Paul Deasey:

Paul Deasey was a professional baseball pitcher in the 1950’s for the St. Louis Browns minor league team in St. Catherine’s Ontario, where in his first game he pitched a no run – no hitter. His competitive spirit migrated to automotive racing where Paul’s competitiveness, problem solving and unique approach to engine design and custom chassis construction made his cars very desirable and successful. Paul’s legendary number 707, “Big Donkey” led him and over eight drivers to be inducted into the DIRT Motorsports Hall of Fame.

During his racing career, Paul Deasey also worked for Koehler and Sons in Philadelphia, manufacturing ball bearing grinding machines. After their closing, and with over twenty years of employment there, Paul moved back to south-central Pennsylvania and began Deasey Machine Tool & Die, Inc. in 1979 (source:  http://www.deaseymachine.com/aboutUs.htm ).


Additional information, along with service information can be found at:  http://www.berkebilefuneralhome.com/Home


Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Paul Deasey.  We will always remember his contribution to the sport of modified stock car racing here in The Vault.

Something to Think About....
Putting Competition Back into Qualifying

East Windsor Speedway - mid to late 70's - Paul Irving photo used to create image above.
Exciting, competitive heat race action was always a critical ingredient of a night at your local short track with drivers trying to earn a starting spot for the night's feature event... Nowadays, that's not always the case... But it should be!
