Jim Oddy has
decided it’s time to settle down for a long winter’s nap and then some. The
veteran team owner/tuner called it quits on the tour after Rockingham.
“We’ve had a great run and a lot of people have helped us along the way,” Oddy said. “We’ve won a lot of championships and won a lot of races. We’ve had a lot of fun doing this. I think it is time to sit back and do some other things.”
Oddy has a new house on Lake Norman in North Carolina and will leave behind the blustery Buffalo, New York, winters.
“We had a bit of snow that hit us hard before we left town,” Oddy said. “There were a lot of people without power. It was a tough time for a lot of people.
Oddy said some of his greatest memories were from 1989 until last year and the time he spent with former driver Fred Hahn and his family. He noted their sacrifices were instrumental in the success as well.
“I think we had one of the best teams ever in drag racing and that’s how I look at it,” Oddy said. “We won championships in every single sanctioning body that we ran in. It was just a great run but just like all good things, they must come to an end.
