The motorsports community in the region is mourning the loss of Jim Sewart, who passed away on Sunday.
From the Heart of a Champion Facebook Page:
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jim Sewart last night. Jim, 71, was a cherished member of the HOAC family and a driving force behind the restoration of our ’67 Chevelle of which he was so proud. He was a longtime well-known member of the Maritime motorsports community racing during the 70s and 80s at Riverside Speedway and Atlantic Speedway, winning multiple sportsman championships at both tracks. He was a lifelong crew member, cheerleader, and best friend for his brother, five-time MASCAR champion Greg Sewart. Arrangements will be posted when complete.
Our thoughts are with the Sewart family.
