Willowbank Raceway is greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Gary Miocevich.

Willowbank Raceway President Tony Wedlock said Miocevich’s contribution to the drag racing community was immeasurable.

“Gary’s contribution to the success of drag racing, a sport that he loved so much, cannot be accurately measured by mere words,” said Wedlock.

“One only has to look at what was achieved under his stewardship, to see the immense impact he has had on our community over the years.

“I had the great pleasure of knowing Gary as a racer, as an ANDRA board member, as a promoter, and most importantly, as a friend – he excelled at all of those things, and I will miss him greatly, as I know many will.

“At this sad time we think of Gary’s wife and family, his brothers, and his close friends – including Kevin Prendergast who was by Gary’s side through much of his success – and on behalf of myself and Willowbank Raceway I would like to extend our deepest condolences to them for their loss.

“Gary was a visionary, who in the modern era of our sport I personally feel really had no equal – he will be sorely missed.”
