Condolences to the family of Ashley Loving

TOLEDO, Ohio (1-28-09)–Condolences to the family of Ashley Loving, who was a familiar face in the grandstands at Flat Rock and Toledo Speedways and whose family has long been deeply involved in ARCA sanctioned racing. Ashley courageously battled life threatening illnesses since birth and passed away peacefully Tuesday January 27, at the age of 15.  Ashley’s parents are Robbie and Jonelle Loving and grandparents are Frank and Peggy Loving. Frank Loving raced in the ARCA Figure-8 and Super Six divisions at numerous tracks, Peggy Loving was a scorer for the ARCA Figure-8 Series and Robbie is a three-time ARCA Figure-8 champion at Flat Rock and Toledo.

We are also sad to say that one our youngest fan club members Ashley Loving passed away this morning. Ashley is the daughter of Many time ARCA Figure 8 Champion Robbie & Jonelle Loving. Her Grandparents are long time members Frank & Peggy Loving. We know not why God has chosen to take her home at this time but, rest assured that she stands now at his side. Our thoughts & prayers are with the Loving family at this time. “God’s Love & Speed” to both these loved ones! Sincerely, Bill Barnhart President MARFC
