When Evans resident Andy Stewart hits the Modoc (S.C.) raceway on Saturday, May 31, he will be honoring a friend and local legend.
Stewart, who drives on short and dirt tracks every weekend from March to November, will forgo his usual No. 75 and will run with No. 45, paying tribute to Lee Paschal, for whom he used to drive.
Paschal, who passed away on May 1, was a 2008 inductee into the Augusta International Raceway Hall of Fame and was known for cars bearing the No. 45.
