Former Duryea residents Jimmy and Joe Bender had plenty to be happy about last weekend at the Daytona 500.
Jimmy is a tire specialist for the #97 Aflac Ford of Jack Roush Racing and driver Carl Edwards. Edwards finished second at Daytona and is currently a top the point standings.
Joe drives the motor coach for crew chief “Sugger” Labbe with the #27 Chevy of Richard Childress and driver Paul Menard. They also posted a Top 10 finish with a ninth place run at Daytona.
