Winner of the 2023 Jeremy Tumblin Memorial Race, Interview

 


Who won the 2023 Jeremy Tumblin Memorial Race back in June of this year at the Warrior Creek Speedway in Gray Court SC, you ask?  None other than Logan Tucker of the Justin McDonald Racing race team. Congrats (again) to the winner and the racing team who won four races that evening!

I was able to get a statement from Tucker last week. This is what he said when I asked if he had had the opportunity to meet Jeremy Tumblin and what it meant to him to win this race two years in a row:

“I met Jeremy Tumblin and he raced with our team on several different occasions at many of the different tracks we traveled to. Being able to win the race the first year was very meaningful, to not only myself but everyone who races with us and who knew Jeremy! Looking ahead to this year, being able to win it again against some stiff competition made it that much sweeter. While winning races at that event was important, we worked extra hard to win that memorial class because we knew Jeremy was looking down and smiling on us. It’s such a special victory to all of us at team JMR. I have the trophy checks and medallions set aside from the rest because of how meaningful this race is to me. Jeremy is greatly missed and played a great part in our racing family.”

Justin McDonald, the team owner, posted this on his personal Facebook page, shortly after the race: “JMR went to the Jeremy Tumblin Memorial Race this past Saturday and ended up with 4 wins, 3 2nds, a 3rd and a 4th place. It was an honor to be able to have a 1-2 finish in the Memorial Race for Jeremy Tumblin. We miss you bro. I can’t thank everyone enough for all their help and hard work in our program. Can’t beat a local Saturday night race.”

No need for my conclusion. These guys wrapped it up nicely. Here’s where I “drop the mic” and walk off the stage, feeling pretty darn good about my son, Jeremy Tumblin.
