The Horn family – father Jeff and son Mike – joined a tight group with Mike’s Northeastern Midget Association victory at Thompson. They are only the fifth father-son combination on the club’s all-time win list.
The Horns join Johnny Coy and his sons Johnny Jr. and Joey, Johnny and Billy Mann, Ronnie and Johnny Evans and Bob and Ricky Hart.
Mike, who started driving for owner Jack Currie back in the early 1990s, aims to join his father on the all-time Lee USA Speedway win list as well. NEMA makes its first of the season and its 29th all-time Lee visit Friday night.
Four of Jeff Horn’s 20 wins have come at Lee. Drew Fornoro is the leader with six.
There are a number of sibling combinations with NEMA wins including the current Stoehr brother’s rivalry. Point leader Russ Stoehr, third and second in the last two Lee races, has a couple wins on the three eights layout. Brother Greg, presently running second in points, is seeking his first.
