For those who have not heard Edd French of Dallas Texas area passed away yesterday.

 

Remember watching Edd race the four 7's  several  times in 74/75 season at Lawton Speedway, his car was one of the first sprint tail tank covers I had ever seen back then, looked very odd to all the squared/duck tailed style cars , now today it is all the norm.

Remeber Edd following the WoO when they came through on their Sagebrush Tour in early 80's and Edd had a Big Block with Zoomies, would ring your ears even from middle of the Bellville Highbanks infield, I attribute that to some of my deafness over the years.lol

Even remember Edd racing at OKC back in the 90's and he was still running 305's with Smiley Sitton SST Series in Texas.

 

Very long career for Edd , RIP Edd French.

Came to Knoxville, maybe a season opener and won the feature. Drove a car out of Grand Island that was super fast. Had a long career.
