I have been hoping for the best and hoping that Jay gets better. Now, I just hope he is comfortable and that his family and friends are strong. Be well my friend. Walk slow, and we'll catch up.

Sad to hear this Jay.

 

Take as many laps as you want then pack up and 'go home' when you've had enough.

Here is a half page add Jay took in the Bulletin. He wanted the ad but I think he wanted to have his friends names in the magazine even more. From 2005.

Matt told me that Jay's only family was his fellow racers and the guys at SpeedZone. So everyone say an extra prayer for Jay tonight. I know I will.

I've had Jay on my mind for the past couple days and yes I've been concerned in prayer before the Lord.

Does he have any minister friends? I'd be visiting if I could. Right now is the time to be looking for spiritual resolve.
You can quote me.

I am very saddened to report that Jay Kisling passed away this morning, about an hour or so ago. 

 

RIP, Jay. There's going to be a new guy to beat at that racetrack in heaven now...

At Jay's request, no service for him will be held.

 

It should be no surprise to anyone who knew Jay that he instead wanted a memorial slot car race held in his honor and the planning for that is in the works, almost certainly to be held at Mike Iles' SpeedZone Raceway in Mt. Holly, NJ.

 

As soon as the details are firmed up, the Jay Kisling memorial race info will be posted here at Slotblog.
