Learned through multiple tweets today that John Potts has passed away. John was a member here at RacersReunion though he didn't post frequently. He was very helpful to me in providing photos and some additional info regarding my blog post about Lee Petty's win at Corbin Speedway in Kentucky - the only GN/Cup race held in the bluegrass state until Kentucky Speedway was added to the Cup schedule.
I didn't know John personally. But based on the bit I've read today, some are familiar with him from his days as an ASA flagman - especially at Winchester Speedway. Hopefully others here knew him and will have more to add.
Here is John's RR member page:
