NASCAR Hall of Fame: David Pearson
Garage renamed for late team owner; special salute coming on Lap 90 RELATED: In Memoriam: Junie Donlavey photo gallery RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond International Raceway and Circle Sport Racing will honor a homegrown NASCAR legend this weekend with a series of tributes to the late Junie Donlavey. Circle Sport, which will field the Joe Falk-owned Chevrolet this weekend for veteran David Stremme , announced Friday that the team will change its car number from 33 to the familiar No. 90 that Donlavey campaigned for all but a few of his 863 races in NASCAR's premier series as an owner from 1950 to 2002. Falk -- a native of Chesapeake, Virginia, about 100 miles southeast of Richmond -- tweeted that the deck lid of the car will feature the names of drivers who raced for Donlavey through the years. The deck lid has all driver names Junie helped make famous — Joefalk33 (@Joefalk33) September 4, 2014 Donlavey died in his hometown of Richmond on June 9 at the age that matched his longtime car number. The 0.75-mile track has also scheduled plenty of celebrations of Donlavey's life: • The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage has been renamed the Junie Donlavey Garage with a ceremonial arch placed over the main entrance. • Ken Schrader, who ran his first three seasons in NASCAR's top division for the veteran team owner, will drive a ceremonial pace lap in a former Donlavey car before Saturday night's Federated Auto Parts 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC). • A special salute is planned on the 90th lap of Saturday night's race with a graphic on the track's video screen. The display will also feature a video tribute before driver introductions. Donlavey's only victory as a team owner in NASCAR's top series came with Jody Ridley behind the wheel at Dover International Speedway in 1981. David Pearson , Fred Lorenzen and Joe Weatherly were among the NASCAR Hall of Famers who once drove for Donlavey.
