Just heard of the sad passing of “Doc” Wester Thursday. In roadracing’s heyday back in the 60s and 70s, “Doc” was one of the driving forces behind the “Big D Pacers “. The D was for Dallas for you youngsters. They put on roadraces @ such tracks as Green Valley, Dallas International, Oak Hill. He was a very hard worker at those events.
Our thoughts and prayers to Jimmy Wester and the rest of “Doc’s” family.
Keep on kartin'. llb
Thanks for posting, Linda. I have fond memories of the Big D Pacers, with Doc holding the drivers meetings, including my first road race, which was at Green Valley over 50 years ago– fun times, indeed! While Doc is perhaps best remembered for his work putting on races and helping son Jimmy with his racing program, he was also an accomplished racer himself, competing in the old sportsman class of the 1960s and early 1970s. Yes, he did it all!
