Who was race car driver Kevin Ward Jr.? Published: August 11, 2014

Here, in these tiny towns at the southern end of New York's Adirondack Region, there are no strangers, says USA Today.

"Everybody feels awful bad," said Don Gydesen of neighboring Lyons Falls. "Everybody around here knows Kevin."

They know his father, too. Kevin Sr. owns Westward Painting. He sponsored the truck series not long ago at Adirondack Speedway. The story told by several townsfolk was that when the town of Lyons Falls needed the railings of the Black River bridge painted, Kevin Sr. just did it. For free.
