Jimmie Ford. Ford began racing at Fremont in 1954 and raced through 1971. His biggest win came during the Fremont Speedway fair race in 1968. He had two career feature wins at Fremont. After retiring from driving, Ford owned sprint cars through 1986, and his drivers won over 60 features. His son, Randy drove the family's #10 to the Fremont Speedway track championship in 1986. Perhaps his greatest racing legacy began in 2000 when he convinced the Sandusky County Fair Board to allow him to promote Fremont Speedway which was in danger of closing for good. Ford brought "The Track That Action Built" back to life, and he retired from the promotion of the speedway in 2007.
