Racing Legends Medical Hardship Fund was established in 1991 to assist with the needs of life hardships for drivers and other racing proffessionals. Wether it be medical emergencies or the burial of a driver, the Medical Fund tries to assist those that continue to make racing what it is today.
This fund was developed by the founders of the Old Timer's Racing Club in 1991. The first chairman of the fund was Jimmie Lewallen of Archdale, NC. The original board members were Jimmie Lewallen, Margaret Rominger (wife of early racing pioneer Slim Rominger), Bunny Turner (wife of racing legend/pioneer Curtis Turner), Larry Frank (who passed away this year), Doris Roberts (wife of Glenn "Fireball" Roberts), Wanda Lund Early (wife of Tiny Lund), Tim Flock and his wife Frances Flock. Our current board members are Gary Lewallen, Chairman, Frances Flock, Fred Harb, Mike Sykes ex-officio and President of the Old Timer's Racing Club. As you can see, all members are family of racers and racing.
