Lakeland’s Jon Herring likes car. And since 1960 he’s espressed his interest through racing. In a race in 1979 Herring finished fifth overal and first in the showroom stock B class at West Palm.
He drove Saab 99 LE, same one drives to work each day. Herring has grown quite fond of the Saab make. “It’s (SAAB) the best car in its class“, he said. “It saved my life abou year ago.” While racing 1978, Herring “flipped nose over tail” five times!
His faith in his car came through and he escaped with only a torn shoulder muscle.
