!/2 of the lemmo Bros Passed away. The Lemmos were a force to be reckoned with in the 50's with their number B-8 Buick straight 8 powerd race cars.
The cars alwas looked and ran good. Ned was the driver and Vince the mechanic.
Ned always had the cigar not that it was lit most of the time.
I remember their exploits well.
As I reflect back to racing at the fairgrounds and CMS I often think of the Lemmos.
My condolences to the Lemmo family and friends.
