On another somber note, we received this message from Sonoma:
So the racers up north will know, Barbara Jean Winston passed away on Saturday 10/26/13.
Barbara Jean Winston of MBA Racing, owner, driver and wonderful teammate, passed away unexpectedly away last Saturday, October 26, 2013. Barbara was born on Valentines Day, 1963 and was a resident of Orangevale CA. Barbara was a very popular racer in northern and central California, Boise and Vegas and had a host of wonderful friends within NHRA. She always insisted that no fuss be made about her but was just the opposite toward others. Barbara is survived by her husband and fellow racers, Mike and her daughter Apryl. MBA racing owns four Pontiac race cars and all three of the family drives them. Their home track is Sonoma CA. and Barbara was one of the 16 finalists at the last “Pinks all Out” held in Sonoma. She earned several trophies and low qualifiers throughout her racing career. Win or lose, it was fun for her. She nicknamed herself Mean Barbara Jean and raced her “69 Fire Chicken at any opportunity. Racing was her ultimate passion and her friends at the racetracks became her family. She lived her life a quarter mile at a time!
For more information about the Barbara and her racing team, you can view the MBA racing website at www.MBA-racing.com Her family has asked that in lieu of flowers, cards etc. donations be made to DRAW in her name at www.drawfasthelp.org.
