SHRA Celebrates Bee Godwin

The MalloryPrint.com SHRA racing community came together in fine form at Wichita Raceway Park to celebrate the life of Bee Godwin, who we lost this past April. WRP was Godwin's home track where he had made hundreds if not thousands of runs and also served as track manager. Friends and family of Bee came in from multiple states to be a part of this special race weekend and the support from racers and fans was immense. 126 racers overflowed the pit area which set a new attendance record for the SHRA series. Among those, a series record 16 cars were entered in AlkyDigger Nostalgia Eliminator 3 competition. This event, held Saturday, September 10th, was presented by Don Hardy Racecars & Hot Rod Shop.
It was a fantastic evening of racing as the SHRA community raced in memory of Bee Godwin.
