ARCA Truck Series Family Loses a Friend: Jim Long
By Deborah Eimer-Maple
With a heavy heart, I post these memories (with family permission) in CELEBRATION of the life of a very special man. Jim Long passed away March 19th; He was a long standing crew member the team of #81 Shawn Szep, 2016 ARCA Truck Series Champion. He was a patient man, answering questions, teaching those around him, and most importantly spending time and sharing what he loved with his sons, Jeff Long, Jon Long, and his son Jim Long.
You have reached the finish line my friend. The CHECKERED FLAG is yours.
Rest easy and cheer us all on from above. You will be missed.
