Winder Barrow Speedway is deeply sadden as we lost one of our very own Mr. Mack Canup. on November, 28 2020 Mack gained his Angel wings to go home to be with the Lord! As Melissa Roberts Stated " Turn one will never be the same". She is so right on that for sure. If you have ever been in the pits at Winder Barrow Speedway you walked right by him every Saturday night. Mack "being a racing legend himself" was very knowledgeable about dirt track racing and cars in general. Mack was one of the greatest men you could ever meet and loved watchin his grandson Tyler Canup race. You could see him with that smile on his face when Tyler won as he came to the front stretch to get his picture made and always holding up that #1 finger.
Winder Barrow Speedway sends our sincere condolences to the Canup family. We ask that you keep them in your prayers in the days. weeks, and month's to come. A great man gone to soon. Rest in Peace Mack till we meet again!
