A Celebration of Benny’s Life will be held at a later date.

Benny was born and raised in Concord, North Carolina and enlisted in the United States Air Force out of high school. Following the military, he went on to drive trucks for over 40 years and logged over 1 million miles. Being on the open road was great, however his true passion was drag racing. He raced for the last 30 years with his family and enjoyed every minute of it. Other enjoyments in his life, included riding Harley Davidson’s and browsing through Flea Markets. His final miles have been travelled and his logbook is now complete. Safe travels.
