Dear Jane and family,
I remember being just a little girl with curlers in my hair, attempting to wash Pop's 9A, or attempting to change tires in the garage! Had to get "nine-a" ready for Jerry to race and win. Alot of great memories then! Pop and Jerry are now together talking racing, and what use to be.
Jane - you and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Loved Jerry in Howard Frye's old 9A. He was a great driver and all around nice guy. I still have a couple of his old trophies he gave me. My sympathy goes out to the entire Camp family.

When you think or say Pleasantville Speedway,Jerry Camp would be one of many that would pop into your mind.Before I got my own car,he was one of the guys I would route for.
I had blown the motor in my car and was out for a week,so I took movies at the 4th turn at P'ville,some good memories of Jerry on that film.It can be seen at the ACSpeedway website.
R.I.P. Jerry I'll be catching up to you soon. Ray Miles #27
