I was shocked to read Texas Tom’s post on April 29th regarding the passing of Freddy Fryar and Dorothy McCall.

 Dorothy McCall was the wife of Bob McCall and mother of Robin McCall. Dorothy McCall was the grand lady of a grand McCall auto racing family. My wife Terry and I were guests in her home several times. She was a genuine person and a great lady.

RIP - Dorothy McCall.

 

Freddy Fryar was one the very best stock car drivers to base his racing operations in Beaumont Texas for many years. He rightfully earned the nickname, “The Beaumont Flyer - Freddy Fryar". My professional contact with Freddy was when he raced at Texas World Speedway where I was Race Director. He won Texas Race of Champions #5 in 1980 in his #14 Chevrolet Camaro and again in 1984 in TROC #8 when Freddy raced his unfamiliar #46 Chevrolet Camaro into the TWS Victory Circle.

He was also a three time winner of the Texas Grand Prix in 1983 and again in 1986 as Freddy Fryar won the fall event in his familiar - #14 - Chevrolet Camaro. On March 8, 1987 Freddy Fryar raced his #14 which was a Pontiac Firebird to the win.

RIP - “The Beaumont Flyer - Freddy Fryar".
