Racing Legend Joy Fair Passes Away!

We regret to inform you that this morning, Midwest and Michigan Short Track Racing lost a legend as Joy Fair passed away suddenly while enjoying his regular breakfast with his buddies. Joy was a legend not only in michigan but also in the entire midwest as the driver of the school bus yellow #1. Joy took numerous championships at the Flat Rock and Mt. Clemens Race Tracks. Funeral arrangements are not known but when they are available, Please check our website¬†for details on Joy’s life and accomplishments as well as visitation details. The last time I saw Joy, the first thing He did was to shake my hand and proceed to tell me a joke. That is how I will remember a driver and a personality who gave so much to so many of us just by being who he was. He was one of my heroes and I will always remember the sights and sounds of the school bus yellow #1 showing everyone the fast way around the race track.

Gods Speed Joy and condolences to the Fair family.

Yours in racing,

Dave DeHem
