Jim McCallum Passes at 69
« on: September 24, 2013, 09:31:14 AM »
Jim McCallum, 69, of Fall River, MA passed away on September 20 after a long illness.
 
Born on January 14, 1944, McCallum’s four-decade racing career began in the mid-1960s. He was the 1969 Sportsman champion at Stafford. He added back-to-back titles at Westboro in the Grand American division in 1971-72.
 
McCallum will perhaps best be remembered for his contributions to Pro Stock racing. With New England tracks adding the division in the early 1980s, McCallum excelled as a car builder and driver. McCallum won Pro Stock championships in 1985 at the old Riverside Park Speedway and at Thompson. He also captured Stafford’s Pro Stock honors in 1991.

My condolences.  Saw Jim race a couple of times out in MA and he was a fine chauffeur.  Built a solid car, too, from what I hear...
