  • Former NASCAR driver Jody Lavender remembers his racing days

    Jody Lavender has dreamt of becoming a race car driver when he was in kindergarten. He quit racing in NASCAR in late 2010s, but he still misses the excitement and being able to travel around. From time to time, he competes in local races in a super late model car that he built from scratch. Lavender now owns CRC Metal Fabrication shop in Murrells Inlet.
