Rudy Branham, a fixture at several Pee Dee race tracks, for decades passed away last night. Rudy had been fighting cancer off and on for almost 15 years. He was a close friend of several of our staff member and co-hosted That’s Racing on Eagle 92.9 with Hunter Thomas for a season or 2. His infectious smile and laugh will be missed off the track and his hard racing will be missed on track. Rest in peace Rudy.
