Not sure what to say?

My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Ray's family. Always enjoyed watching him race at Golden Gate along with so many other great drivers.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to all the family

Always enjoyed watching Ray race at Golden Gate and Sunshine Speedways. Condolences to his entire family. Loved seeing the
#12 Racing for Jesus Chevy in the field. Tough competitor every
week. Thanks for the memories

We were so sorry to hear of Ray's passing.Like Billy Gill we use to cheer for both of them. The Harvey family in Sarasota use to know the very young Ray.

My grandfather and I attended the stock car races at Sunshine Speedway, Golden Gate Speedway and other Florida suncoast tracks throughout the 1970's. Mr. Bontrager was one of the top drivers, and one of our favorites. Thanks for the memories!
