The Maritime racing community is at a loss following the passing of Allan Curry.
Willing to help out wherever he could, Allan held many positions in the sport through the years. Allan was instrumental in the revival of both Petty International Raceway and Cape Breton Miners Memorial Speedway as lead for timing and scoring and a race director. He was the lead timing and scoring official for many years on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour and most recently drove the pace car among other roles he held on race day. The pace car is an example of the many ways he supported racing through business, whether it be through Dartmouth Dodge or Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre. Just this past season, Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre was the title race sponsor on the return of the Pro All Stars Series to Canada and their debut at Petty International Raceway, along with joining the Maritime League of Legends Tour for their Series finale. In addition to being an official and a marketing partner with many tracks and series in the region, he supported a number of race teams throughout the years.
Allan Curry was one of the most dedicated and passionate individuals you would find at a race track. He could brighten the day and pick spirits up with a quick laugh at any time. An event benefited greatly by having Allan Curry taking part in some way. Simply put, he was a race’s best friend in the Maritimes.
As much as he loved racing, he loved his family. Our thoughts are with those that were close to Allan, all his friends and colleagues at this difficult time.
