Long time auto racing writer Jerry Reigle passes away

Fronstretch is hearing that long time short track racing columnist Jerry Reigle has passed away this morning after nearly a year long battle with Cancer. Jerry was, for many years a writer for the Harrisburg Patriot, while writing columns for many other publications covering the local racing scene. Jerry recently took a position with Area Auto Racing News and was extremely active in covering local dirt track racing. Motorsports was not only his profession but his passion.

Our sincerest condolences go out to Jerry’s wife Kelly and his entire family. Mr. Reigle was a very well liked and respected individual who the racing industry will surely miss. His contributions to the sport will be impossible to replace.
