RIP Kim Brown

The news is circulating of the unfortunate passing of Kim Brown today. I only had the pleasure of meeting Kim on a couple of occasions, but I could instantly tell she was an incredible person that truly cared about what she did. In following Kim both on Facebook and Twitter, she fought her fight with a positive attitude and a strength and determination that was truly inspirational. This really is a tremendous loss all around.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and the entire Florida short track community.

Thank you Kim, for all you did. Godspeed

Terrible loss, she was just awesome, she fought her fight with dignity and a smile. She always remembered me, just a fan who bought a ticket and took time to chat when i called with a question. Just hate to hear this news.

Well, as is inevitable for all of us, her race has now been run, and she has joined The Great Sanctioning Body in the Sky.

Live life large, and live it well, for it is later than we think.

And I try to remember, today is just as important as the last day.

Happy Sunday, am off to Church. Blessings to all, particularly Kim’s loved ones.

I worked with her several times when I sponsored awards for several classes. She was always so pleasant and gracious. God bless her and her family.


From the entire Weaver family, our heart and love goes out to Kim’s family, and the entire New Smyrna Speedway staff. I count my self as truly blessed to have known Kim when we would come up for Speedweeks. She was a very special person, and the world will be just a little less bright now.

God Speed Miss Kim… You were great for NSS and the racing community. It was an honor to know you and call you a friend. Glad I got a big hug last time I was at the track.
