wince

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.
