I have been involved in racing since I was very young. My dad was Racing Legend Jimmie Lewallen who raced in the 30's thru the early 70's when he stopped racing. He was one of the originial pioneers that helped Bill France start NASCAR. You can see him on Facebook at Racing Legend Jimmie Lewallen. I owned an open wheel modified in the early 90's that was formerly one of Kenny Minter's cars from Martinsville VA. Bubba Beck and I ran this car at Bowman Gray Stadium and on the S.M.A.R.T Tour now called the Whelen Southern Modified Tour. I just this year got back in racing before and I am currently running a 39 Ford Flathead Coupe with the Legendary Flathead Ford Racing Series. My car number is 56 and that is the number my dad ran when he time trialed on Daytona Beach in the 40's. I am very partial to the history of racing and its roots as I also am the Chairman of the Racing Legends Medical Hardship Fund which is a non-profit that helps those that helped start racing and are now in need of some financial assistance for medical needs. This is what drives me in helping to preserve the past so the future knows where it came from.
