What a great opportunity for the students of Wolfe County High School. A big shout out to Wolfe County High School principal Greg Creech and all of the staff involved for making this happen. Here is the email Mr. Creech sent out.
WCHS, WCHS Youth Service Center, The Mayabb Family and UNITE are happy to announce an exciting field trip to 191 Speedway’s Wince Mayabb Memorial Dirt Race on Saturday September 13th, 2014.
Wince’s dream before his tragic death was to involve every single kid of Wolfe County in activities such as sports, motorsports and other activities to keep them away from the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Wince dreamed of the dirt track, a park for little kids, a park for older kids, activities involving motorsports and all sorts of alternatives for our youth. Wince got the dream started with the track and I feel It’s our responsibility to keep the dream alive.
UNITE and WCHS are constantly looking for ways to involve kids in fun activities that will help keep their mind off of choices and activities involving Drug/Alcohol use. We are pleased to announce that this event will allow kids to see the sport of dirt track racing and the amount of work, dedication and commitment it requires. These particular events will include:
Motivational Speech from one of 191’s Dirt Late Model drivers
Track preparation and maintenance procedures
Race day preparation
Safety precautions and equipment seminar
Technology and timing system prep
Driver and car introductions
Team Pit tour
Students may qualify for this trip by achieving at least one of the following goals:
Be an active UNITE Club Member
At least one Positive referral from a teacher through Mrs. Gullet’s Positive Referral Program.
Perfect attendance for the 2014-15 school year
Straight As on first mid term
WCHS would like to thank everyone involved in making this event possible for our students!
Wince Mayabb, father of Kevin and Walt Mayabb, husband of Lola Mayabb, and father of 191 Speedway lost his life Saturday night due to injuries sustained in an accident in front of the track entrance.
Words can’t describe the sadness that is felt throughout the Mayabb family and racing community. Wince was one of the most generous and kind hearted people that you could ever meet. He never failed to help anyone in need and was always willing to lend a helping hand no matter what the situation. He was known at the track for his peacemaking ability and taking care of all the racers and fans to make sure they had anything and everything they needed to have a good time. He demonstrated a tireless work ethic that was unimaginable. His track duties took him to the front gate to help with parking cars last night where the accident occurred.
It was his dream, along with Walt and Kevin, to build a track in our small town of Campton, KY. The dream began some five years ago and finally became a reality in the fall of 2009 when 191 Speedway hosted two races at the end of the season. The track’s inaugural season began in the spring of 2010. Crowds started out small but began to grow at an enormous rate. No one would have ever dreamed that 191 Speedway would be this big this quick. With the hard work and dedication of the staff at 191 the track is getting bigger crowds every week. Wince got to see the biggest crowd in the history of 191 Speedway before he passed away.
We are all very saddened by the loss but Wince was at the place he dreamed about, doing what he loved to do, surrounded by his family and friends. He wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. We wish he could have seen more racing action at the place he loved, but we know that he will be watching all of the races from up above, probably sitting in one of his old water trucks with a big grin on his face.
Visitations for Wince Mayabb will be on Tuesday August 31, 2010 from 5:00 until ?? at the Porter & Son Funeral home in Campton, KY. The funeral will be held on Wednesday September 1, 2010 at 11:00.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Wince Mayabb Memorial Fund at Farmers And Traders Bank in Campton.

191 Speedway will be hosting a potluck dinner at the track on Wednesday evening beginning at 6:00 pm to remember Wince. All racers, fans, friends, and anyone else are invited. Plans are to sit around and enjoy a great meal and just celebrate the life of one of the finest people that has ever lived. We hope everyone can come out and support our family during this trying time.
With a very saddened heart, I am passing the news that Kenny King, driver of the K7 4 cylinder, passed away last night after his feature race. Kenny has been a lifelong friend to many people in the racing community including the Mayabb family. A lot of people were fortunate enough to know Kenny and call him their friend. I never saw the man without a smile on his face just itching to tell you some kind of story. Just last night he passed the track up to go pick up a friend that needed a ride to the track and when he came back he was telling a story to Walt as he went in. Whenever you saw Kenny King, you saw him laughing and having a good time no matter who it was with. I spoke with him last night after hot laps and in Kenny King fashion he was telling a good story. I ask him how many rpm’s that Chevette was cranking and he said “every pound she will crank” with a big grin on his face.
Racing was a major part of Kenny’s life and I don’t think anyone was ever any happier to be in a car than he was. He was a major fan of 191 Speedway and 191 Speedway was a fan of Kenny’s too. Most of us will never get to choose where or how we will depart this life but I feel Kenny King got to choose. He was at the place he loved doing what he loved to do. Kenny will be greatly missed at the track but I know he will be watching over us all every Saturday night with that big grin on his face.
