South Sound Speedway, June 6th. Memorial Lap for Cheryl Jones led by Jim and Kyten Jones.

Posted by | Posted in General | Posted on 15-06-2015

This post comes with a great sadness, in Loving Memory of Cheryl Denise Jones, the Memorial Lap was led by Jim Jones in the 26 car and Kyten Jones in the 30 car.  It is never easy to write a post about a Memorial Lap, but usually they were about men who passed away at an elder age and raced for many years. Not about a lovely young women who passed away at the young age of 44.

Cheryl was one of those racing wives who gave 100% to support her husband Jim and son Kyten in racing.  Cheryl was the front runner for the huge BBQs after an evening of racing and always included everyone to join in the big spread of food.  I, for one, will miss Cheryl who was an amazing women and friend.

Thank you to all the racing teams who participated in the Memorial lap. Too the families and friends who came out to support the Jones family during the Memorial Lap.

From Shari Ball,

“I am so happy to say that we were able to raise over $2600 for the Jones Family. And a HUGE Congrats to George Regier!!!! (winner of the Vintage Modified)

I would like to personally thank Steve and Rhonda Lundquist for asking “What can we all do” and getting this ball rolling!! Mike Clother, Bill Brewer and Micki Rux with the VMRA for ALL the participation on your side…. Thank-you is not nearly enough…

We are family! Racing in any form is indeed a family. When one of us hurts we all do. This is when we just step in and help our brother’s and sister’s. Mutual love and respect is what it is.

To the Jones’ Family….. our hearts are with you…..”
