Nedra Ware in Marshall, Texas, where her rooms are filled with racing paraphernalia
On October 20 some 160 former race drivers and mechanics joined the Reunion at Soldier Creek Ranch in West Fort Worth. Gracious hosts were R. David and Sherri Jones. Some well-known names of the past were present to enjoy the traditional barbecue and we will post photos of a number of them in this thread.
However, on our way to Fort Worth we first made a stop in Marshall, Texas, to visit Nedra Ware. Texas-born Nedra raced a Siata in the January 1957 Little Sebring race and was very competitive with production Porsches around the Southeast in the late fifties/early sixties, when she and husband Jim Ware lived in Chattanooga and West Palm Beach.
Nedra is still good friends with former racers Smokey Drolet, Lonnie Rix and Bob Bellows, and was part of J. Frank Harrison's crew at Nassau in 1962. She fondly remembers how Lloyd Ruby drove her around the track on his Harley-Davidson.
