PALM extends our heartfelt condolences to the family & friends of Jackie Ward

PALM wishes  to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, pit crew, friends, and fans  of Jackie Ward of Surfside Beach, SC.  “I’m not sure if Jackie ever won a race, but his excitement, spirit and enthusiasm would lead everyone to believe he won every week,” Myrtle Beach Speedway racer Keith Ferrell expressed. “Jackie was a true friend and ultimate fan of the sport and to talk with him you would find that out pretty fast. That black 3 car was a true staple of Myrtle Beach Speedway. Not seeing Jackie roll in every week with it will leave a true void.”
