Those who knew John Bankston understand that completely. His sparkle and wit, his love for his friends, his voracious love of racing and more, are better described by his many friends. These traits are better represented in the "Friends in Shock" link, which lists many of the posts from various message boards, that were posted when they learned of John's tragic end in a sprint car at Eldora in Ohio.
This is everyone's site... to share their thoughts and stories and photos they might have. We are hoping that more will share other stories on the message board, and share photos by e-mailing them to either Carol of Steven (or if you don't have access to a scanner, and you want to send the photo to us, we promise to return it). When possible, with the photos, it would be most helpful if you could include the photographers name, so that we may give credit to him/her.
John's racing career spanned through 5 decades, as he began racing in 1960. He has raced many types of cars, but was noted for his modified and sprint car racing. He has always held his fans in as high esteem as we did him. As you will read... everyone loved and respected this man, and thoroughly enjoyed being in his presence. As a friend wrote to me recently: "Yesterday is in the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a GIFT. That's why it is called the present! John bestowed many gifts upon you. Keep his presence with you." That is the driving force behind this web site... to keep the presence of John Bankston with us, not only in our hearts, but in our total awareness as well.
