We are saddened this evening to learn of the passing of Pete Blackwell, who along with brother Tom, have promoted Greenville-Pickens Speedway, Greenville, S. C. for the past 43 years under the NASCAR Banner. Their facility, a historic half-mile oval, is currently recognized as the second oldest active weekly racing facility in NASCAR.

The family will receive friends on Saturday evening, May 13, at 7:00 P.M. at the Thomas McAfee Funeral Home, 639 N. Main Street, Greenville, S. C. 29601. Present plans, pending final arrangements, are for the funeral to be Sunday afternoon, May 14, at 2:00 P.M. from the same location. Memorials or flowers may be sent to the funeral home.

Please remember the Blackwell family with your prayers.

Be part of something big
