Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park to Remember Kevin Ward Jr. This Friday Night; 13th Starting Position to be Left Open for Remaining Events


Just a few days ago, Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park lost a great friend and supporter with the tragic passing of Kevin Ward Jr.  The 20 year old driver was extremely talented and had unlimited potential.  This coming Friday night, we will honor and remember Kevin.  We encourage everyone to where orange in memory Kevin and to show our respect to the Ward family.

In addition, Can Am will leave open the 13th starting position in all eligible classes in memory of Ward and his #13.

“What happened last week was very tragic, and this is the least we can do to help honor Kevin’s name”, says Can Am General Manager Alana Moncrieff.  “The Ward family always participated in our car shows and other events, they would be one of the first people to confirm participation.  They loved racing, and they were a great supporter of Can Am”.

Kevin’s services will be held at the Trainor Funeral Home on 143 Schuyler Street in Boonville, NY. Calling Hours are this Wednesday 1-4 and 6-9 with the funeral the next day at 11. The family wants to see the biggest turn out there ever. They are very proud of Kevin Jr.
