SHRA Remembers William "Bee" Godwin
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of SHRA racer William 'Bee' Godwin. Bee and his wife Sharon are dedicated racers to the SHRA with Bee playing a key role in the SHRA as a member of the Nostalgia Eliminator Rules Committee. Bee was the 2013 SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator 2 Champion and was always in the hunt for wins. We lost Bee at the SHRA Little River Nationals in a non racing related incident.
