So sad to report that Ed Lynch Sr passed away unexpectedly. He was a fiery competitor, but if you took the time to get to know him, he was a great guy to talk with. God Speed Ed.

Today when i looked at my morning messages the first was from my good friend John Stickley informing me of the loss of my friend Ed Lynch Sr. over the years I have enjoyed our many conversations at the track Ed and myself became very close and it wasnt all about racing we have some mutual friends and many nights it had little to do with the track.

 

I came to know the entire Lynch family very well and consider each one a life long friend, Sr. will be though of in his absence but much remembered for what he has contributed to the sport of Racing and the continuing involvement with Racing.

 

Jean , you have my prayers and support in all you are facing.

More sad news for the racing fraternity, which has seen way too much of it this December!!   Ed will not be forgotten, R.I.P.

Sad day. R.I.P. He once came roaring thru the pits to get back on track and I just couldn't get out of the way fast enough. He told me next time I better be able to jump straight up, we laughed or at least I thought he did. Good guy, so sorry to hear of his passing.

It sure is a pasing of a legend.  This was back when it took "brains and guts".  Now it's  just money.  My condolences to Jean and the Lynch family.  He will be missed.
