Billy Howell, owner of Billy Howell Funeral Chapel in Hodgenville, has been named the newest inductee into the Kentucky Motorsports Hall of Fame.
“It was a complete surprise to me,” said Howell. “I didn’t even know there was such a thing.”
His induction is no surprise, however, to others who watched him race in the ASA, ARCA and NASCAR short track circuits.
Dave Huber, with Kentucky Motorsports Hall of Fame, called Howell a “smart driver.”
