It is with deep regret that we announce the sad passing of Mr. Joe Hesmer.

Joe sadly passed away this week after a short illness.

Joe was very instrumental in the promotion of Canadian Speedway for many years, his dedication was very personal and with his brother JIm, they worked hard to help build speedway in Canada from the grass roots era. Both Joe and Jim's son's rode speedway and were superb riders.

We offer our sincere condolenses to the Hesmer family at this time.
