Jack Starrette Passes Away
One of the finest ambassadors to dirt track racing is no longer with us as Jack Starrette of Belvedere, S. C. died Friday, August 20. Starrette was owner of Starrette Trucking and helped a minimum of 12 Super Late Model drivers financially each and every year. Mr Jack as he was known to many, owned several SLM cars, was a track promoter at one time as well.
He is pictured here with one of his favorite drivers, Ricky Weeks, at the 2004 Carolina Clash banquet held at the Stadium Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Weeks won 5 Clash titles with the Starrette Trucking logo on the side of his car and Jeff Smith took the honors last season, and was sponsored by Starrette as well.
