Condolences to the family & friends. Trevor was well known & touched a lot of people in the motorsport community. I myself got to meet Trevor and his racer son Wheeler & racer father Buddy at Race City Motorsport Park. Trevor was the 1st person to tell me that starting the Calgary Oval Racing Association (CORA) was a good idea. Trevor had lots of respect in the motorsport community & in the founding meeting of CORA he nominated me for president of the club before I could nominate him.

Big fan of Trevor and all the hard charging independents. Trevor showed glimpses of the talent he possessed, driving underfunded rides to respectable results on many occasions. From Calgary 🇨🇦

We lost a great underdog today.

RIP Trevor Boys, 65, was racing in NASCAR from the early 1980s up until the late 2000s

Thoughts and prayers are with the Boys Family🙏🙏🙏.
