It is with unfathomable sadness that we have learned of the passing of Allan Curry, one of the racing community's most valued and staunch supporters, a gentleman with a big heart who would do anything for anyone. We are honored to have had him as a respected part of our racing family here at Petty International Raceway for many years; his absence will be felt by all.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.
