    We had a customer call us today (01/15/13) and tell us that drag racer Ken Montgomery of Triple 555 Nickle fame was put in hospice care just a few days ago. May he be comfortable, and with family...

    My sincere best wishes for Ken Montgomery and his family to be blessed with love and peace.

    Ken Montgomery is without a doubt one of the most significant drag racers to ever come from this area, S.E. PA, Jenkintown. I saw him race at Atco in the late '60's.

    That is lousy news.
    Met Ken when he ran South Glens Falls and won with the SS/FX circuit back in the 60's.
    Ran into him at York reunion and talked to him and his son who was putting together a history of his dad.Super nice people.
    Sent him the pics I had of him at SGF and he sent me back a letter and T shirt.Still got them.
    Best wishes and comfort to Ken and the family.
