James Weber

James Weber, a racing enthusiast, passes away suddenly at the age of 54.


Jim Weber was more than just a brother, uncle, and friend, but that "more" was different for everyone who knew him.  He loved people, even if sometimes he didn't want to admit that, and was one of those guys that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.  He was extremely proud of his service to his country as a U.S. Navy Veteran.  Although Jim enjoyed life where ever it found him, there were two things that made him the happiest: first, his friendships and "bowling alley family" at the Joliet Town and Country Lanes and second, anything to do with racing, especially at the Grundy County Speedway where he spent every Friday during racing season and volunteered as a Pit Steward for the STARS Series.  When Jim was diagnosed with lung cancer a few days after his birthday in November 2017, he had started to put his affairs in order, but was unable to continue working after 15 years at Panel Authority.  I know we all believed he was in for a long fight and had more time to work everything out.  On Thursday, March 29, 2018, Jim passed.  No one was prepared for it to come so soon.  It is for that reason, in accordance with Jim’s final wishes, a memorial fund has been set up. 50% of the fund will be allocated to those final expenses that he would have taken care of had he been here himself.  The other 50% will go to the Mazon Speed Bowl and Grundy County Speedway Hall of Fame in his name.
