BIG DIAMOND MOURNS THE LOSS OF EDWIN RENNINGER
Edwin Renninger, the grandfather of Roadrunner Driver, Cory Renninger,
and the father of former Street Stock driver, Kenny Renninger passed away
April 5, 2001.
Edwin has been associated with Big Diamond Raceway since it opened,
having been a race car owner, member of the track maintenance crew, our track
mechanic, as well as being a fan as he watched his son and grandson race.
Edwin as much a part of what Big Diamond is all about as the speedway
promoters and property owners. His dedicated and successful work in
maintaining the speedway equipment, often less than road or track worthy,
earned him, affectionately the title "Sultan of Scrap" from track promoter,
Fritz Roehrig. Edwin did it all.
His passing leaves a tremendous void in the lives of those who knew
and loved him. To say he will be sorely missed, is an understatement.
Big Diamond Raceway extends our sincerest sympathies to Edwin's wife
June, and his children. Thank you for sharing him with us all these years.
