Edwin Renninger, the grandfather of Roadrunner Driver, Cory Renninger, and the father of former Street Stock driver, Kenny Renninger passed away April 5, 2001.

Edwin has been associated with Big Diamond Raceway since it opened, having been a race car owner, member of the track maintenance crew, our track mechanic, as well as being a fan as he watched his son and grandson race.

Edwin as much a part of what Big Diamond is all about as the speedway promoters and property owners. His dedicated and successful work in maintaining the speedway equipment, often less than road or track worthy, earned him, affectionately the title "Sultan of Scrap" from track promoter, Fritz Roehrig. Edwin did it all.

His passing leaves a tremendous void in the lives of those who knew and loved him. To say he will be sorely missed, is an understatement.

Big Diamond Raceway extends our sincerest sympathies to Edwin's wife June, and his children. Thank you for sharing him with us all these years.
