United Dirt Late Models Coming To Hendry County Speedway
On April. 17, 2007, Hendry County lost one of its favorite sons when Kim Allen lost his valiant battle against colon cancer. Kim was a wonderful father of five, a good husband, and excellent businessman, a friend of many and most of all a good man.
For those who knew Kim he has been dearly missed and for those so didnít, it is definitely a tragic loss for the community.
Many will remember Kim as vice president/branch manager of Clewiston National Bank from 1982-93 and owner of Central Mobile Homes in Clewiston from 1993 till his death. He loved the outdoors, scuba, camping, airboating and the Everglades.
On Oct. 25, the New Hendry County Speedway, located just north of the intersection of Hwy. 80 and US 27, will play host to the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series, which will hold the first ever Kim Allen Memorial Race.

Tickets for this event are currently being sold for $10 each at Central Mobile Homes in both LaBelle and Clewiston. Tickets will also be sold at the gate; however the price will then be $20 per person.
