Joe Martincic

Euclid, Ohio - 2.Dec.2007

"Tinker Joe" Martincic passed away on Sunday, December 2nd, 2007 at his home in Ormond Beach, Florida.
Joe had a great career in the supermodifieds back in the sixties and seventies. He was a tough runner and was very well liked by the fans.
Though he ran mainly in the midwest, he traveled to Oswego several times and thrilled the fans with his yellow sprint car against the roadsters and rear engine regular runners at the Big O.

I knew Joe slightly back in the 50's and 60's through his racing accomplishments. I had the pleasure of speaking with him at length at Randy's Old Timers at Sandusky a couple years back.

Thanks for that time.
RIP "Tinker Joe"
