In memory of Jim "Jimmy" McKinney 

Jim aka "Jimmy" is a great supporter of the world of HO racing and our communities. Jimmy worked as a machinist at International and Ammco tools over 25 years and Heidts Hot Rod Shop up to his retirement. His spare time was dedicated to assist in the production of Quicker Engineering slot car parts. His enthusiastic approach to life was made clear in the fantastic stories that he shared with others on and off the track. Forever with a smile; he was often the first one at the track and the last to leave. Over the years he raised thousands of dollars in donations for Children's Hospital of WI and St. Jude's Children's Hospital. His generous donations have helped many children in their fight against cancer. Jimmy was the first recipient of the Craig Nothstine Outstanding Sportsmanship Award in 2015.


"It's not about winning, I come for the friends."  


We will miss him dearly.
