“Please keep my boys, Jimmy’s side of the family in your prayers in the next couple of days, weeks, and months,” Tara Jane Racey Riggleman said in a Facebook post. “My boys lost their dad this evening in a crash at the Winchester Speedway. We are at [a] loss of words and could really use the prayers.”

While there are social media posts about Billmeyer’s passing, Winchester Speedway has not made any announcements on their social media platforms regarding the death at their facility at the time of publication.

Tracks around the country have sent their condolences to the driver’s family on Facebook.

The death happened during the opening night of the track’s season. The opening night featured Limited Late Model and Mid Atlantic Modifieds in action.
