Local Racer, Michael Conway, Passes away

As many of you have known since we discussed this on our Facebook page and many local forums since last week, our friend and local racer Michael Conway has passed away in a series of tragic events.  Mike was very involved with the Corvette Challenge Series at Englishtown before he also stepped over to the 8.50 Index Series that we regularly cover.  In his first year, he came in second place at Englishtown and took the championship at Atco Raceway.    Mike’s infectious smile and big heart will be missed at the track by all of us for years to come.

We put together a photo gallery with shots we had of Mike racing and in the winner’s circle on our Facebook page. Please visit it and share your favorites with Mike’s friends in the racing community.
