MILLEDGEVILLE — Cruising down the paved road enjoying the ride is not what Roswell Roe Howard was known to do. He much preferred the thrill of speed and putting challengers up to the test against his lead foot. Now at the age of 90, “Roz” is considered a living legend for his victorious wins during his former NASCAR racing days, paving the road for NASCAR drivers today.

Of all the things Howard has accomplished in his life, including racing on the Grand National Circuit and earning a place within the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame in 2004, he said God has always showed him the way, even after loosing two sons from cancer and his beloved wife Treesian just six weeks ago.

Read The Union-Recorder weekend print edition to find out how local businesses are working diligently to help keep Howard’s legacy alive for the world to see.
