Larry Fleeman Memorial 100 on August 11th
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JEFFERSON, GA (July 31, 2012)- Gresham Motorsports Park was saddened by the loss of a business partner and a caring friend this past May. Larry Fleeman was a generous supporter of GMP, his son and granddaughter and the sport of racing. On August 11, GMP will join with his family and friends to remember Fleeman’s life and to celebrate a sport that he loved so much- Racing.
“This race means a lot to me,” said Russell Fleeman, son of Larry Fleeman. “Daddy and I enjoyed racing all of my life and it is something that we did together. Not only is racing something that I enjoy, but it’s also something that holds many memories for me with my dad. It’s nice to have those that have continued to be apart and keep his memory alive, especially because he loved racing so much and was so supportive of GMP.”
Since the first race in November of 2009, Larry Fleeman was a huge part of GMP. He provided the Official Pace Car and sponsored several race events.
“In the short time that I knew Larry Fleeman, it was apparent that our business ties would ultimately bring us together as personal friends,” Said Dan Elliott, General Manager of GMP. “Our friendship was cultivated by a mutual love for automobile racing. It was also apparent that he loved to watch his son and granddaughter race and how important the bond was between them. We can not begin to thank the Fleeman Family enough for all that they have done for GMP and for the sport.”
On August 11th, GMP will remember the life of Larry Fleeman as Mini Stocks, Renegades, Sportsman, Outlaw Late Models, Trucks and Pro Late Models compete on the half-mile oval.
