I will forever be grateful to Pat and his father for allowing the Fann Family to continue to work at the Fayetteville Speedway when they purchased the track from my father, Pete. We met Pat and the Purvis family when they purchased the track. Pat was always kind and I still remember his cookout that he hosted for our family. I still make Pat's baked bean recipe. Daddy loved deep sea fishing with Pat and Mr. George. Prayers for the family; so sorry for your loss
