Mercer Raceway Park mourns the passing of George Shaffer

Mercer Raceway Park mourns the passing of George Shaffer, father and crew chief of Sprint Car driver Aaron Shaffer. George was a welcome and familiar site in the Mercer pits, always wearing his work apron and always a huge smile for anyone and everyone.

There will be a memorial service on Sunday August 19th at Alpine Valley, the ski resort that George owned and operated in Chesterland, Ohio. A formal service will begin at 2 pm followed immediately by a celebration of his life from 3-5.

We send our sincere condolences and prayers to the Shaffer family.
