"Legends Helping Legends" Set For Feb. 4

The Sixth Annual "Legends Helping Legends" will be held Saturday, Feb. 4 from 10 am to 2 pm at Memory Lane Museum in Mooresville, NC.

Home of the Racers Reunion Hall of Fame, Memory Lane will honor NASCAR's fabulous Flock Family; which consisted of brothers Tim, Bob, Fonty and sister Ethel. All four were extremely talented drivers and hold a number of records to this day. Youngest brother Tim led the family in wins and on-track accomplishment, and his widow, Frances, will be an honored guest at the Feb. 4 event.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the medical fund of the Old Timer’s Racing Club, which helps early racing veterans in need. The group is under the leadership of Mike Sykes, who devotes much of his time to supporting those who served as the true back bones of early auto racing.

The Statesville (NC) Shrine Club will provide food and refreshments for the event, and will have a raffle car on site with proceeds going to the Shriners Children’s Hospitals.

More than 50 racing personalities -- including drivers, mechanics, car owners and others are expected to attend the annual event, supporting the Old Timers Racing Club, meeting fans and signing autographs. Admission to the event is just $10.00 per person. Raffle and door prize drawings will be held, with proceeds also going to the Old Timers Racing Club Medical Fund.

As drivers and racing personalities commit to this year's gathering, they will be posted on the Memory Lane Museum website: Memory Lane is located at 769 River Highway in Mooresville, NC.
