When I must leave you for a little
while -- please do not grieve and
shed wild tears and hug your sorrow
to you through the years, But start
out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name live
on and do all things the same, Feed
not you loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful
ways, Reach out your hand in comfort
and in cheer and I in turn will com-
fort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky.
We would like to thank everyone who came out to support the Chili Cook-off and the Billy Kimmel Memorial Foundation
The winner of the Bean Bag Boards was Amanda Brackbill
As has become tradition, we will once again attempt to "white-out" Williams Grove this Sunday as we remember Billy Kimmel with the 6th annual memorial race. We ask everyone attending to wear anything white to the track. Over the past 5 years, we have had incredible results, turning the grandstands into a sea of white. We hope for nothing but the same this weekend.
This year Jordan Givler and Danny Dietrich will be running tribute 47 wings on their cars in honor of Billy.
After the feature event the Kimmel family will also be presenting this year's scholarship winners.
We hope to see you all in attendance at this special event.
William James Allen Kimmel, 27, of Mechanicsburg, passed away Sunday, September 2nd, as a result of a Sprint Car Accident doing what he loved most.
Billy was born in Camp Hill, on September 22, 1979, the son of Robert A. and Jean L. Kimmel who survive him.
He was a graduate of Mechanicsburg High School.
Billy was an avid Sprint Car racer and fan, he worked on various teams since the age of 12, eventually owning his own car and team, racing mostly at Williams Grove Speedway and sometimes Lincoln and Port Royal Speedways.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brother Robert P. Kimmel of Dillsburg.
We'd like to congratulate both Erica and Corey on being selected as the 2012 Memorial Scholarship Award Winners!
We'd also like to thank all of our applicants, and wish them the best as they begin their college careers!
Finally, a big thank you to everyone that helped make the 5th Annual Billy Kimmel Memorial Race a success!
