Lynn Baldwin, Jr.

Drag racing lost one of the true gentlemen of our sport Wednesday when Lynn passed away at First Health Regional Hospital in Moore County.

Lynn was transported to the hospital Sunday with heart concerns after winning a round of racing at Rockingham.

With a few days short of turning 71, Baldwin was a frequent competitor at area tracks in his immaculate 1972 Plymouth Road Runner.

"He exemplified the spirit of drag racing and our racing community is mourning today," said Rockingham Dragway owner Steve Earwood. "He was impressive on and off the track with a gentle, positive, upbeat attitude. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Jean, and his family and friends."

No arrangements have been made at this time.
