In the face of tragedy and adversity, the racing family helps each other out in the only way they know how, support. In The Pits would like to send out our condolences to the family of Janet Billings. This horrible tragedy is exactly that, a tragedy. Our thoughts and our prayers go out to the family and friends of Janet, who was a strong supporter of local racing. I have no doubt that the racing community/family will be there for each other in this time of need. Rest In Peace…
