The local Baton Rouge racing community has lost one of their most friendly and personable people. “Billy Jack” passed away last Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017. In addition to his duties as State Capitol Raceway Chief Starter, he was a member of the NHRA Safety Safari.

Billy Jack will be missed by all the racers at SCR. He always treated me with the greatest respect, at the track and in public.

The services were held on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017
