From Jim’s daughter, Lisa Fuller:

Jimmy McCallum Passed Away in September of 2013. His passion for racing has touched the lives of many. He had voiced, that he did not want a service. Understandable, since he spent most of his life in the fast lane. I like many feel he should be remembered – we all deserve that – but in a way he would have approved of. I believe he would smile at all of us coming together for a party, in one of his favorite places. With that sentiment, We are going to throw a party, a Memorial/Benefit on Saturday April 19 at Thompson Speedway. This evening will be a Vegas Themed Event that is sure to be enjoyed by everyone. Appetizer’s, music and of course Vegas style entertainment. We all love racing; the future of this sport lies in our young developing drivers. The proceeds from this event will be used to provide, future racer’s from Little T Speedway with a much needed scoreboard. Your participation will help preserve the future of Racing and the memory of my father Jimmy McCallum.

For more information or to reserve a spot in the Texas Hold-Em game, email Lisa Fuller at [email protected] or call 774-696-2473.

  1. I didn’t know he had passed. What a great way to honor his life.

  2. An excellent gesture to honor him as Jim was great racer and fabricator with a great personality that made him popular with fans and fellow competitors.

  3. I also did not know Mr. McCallum had passed. I enjoyed watching him race when he would come up to northern Maine for the “Summer Sizzler” races at Spud Speedway in the mid-1990’s. His #2 was always one of the cars to beat. RIP Mr. McCallum!
