From Royce Miller:

I am saddened by the news of the loss of another great one. Carroll Carter from C&C Motorsports passed away on Monday, April 12, 2021, at the age of 75. If you are a hard-core Ford racer, you knew who Carroll Carter was. He was celebrating 50 years at C&C Performance - the business he founded in 1971 in Manassas, Va. He designed and produced specialty performance Ford blocks and cylinder heads as well as a full machine shop and speed shop.

I also grew up in Manassas, Va and own an auto care center just a few miles down the road from C&C. Not to mention, I started racing at Old Dominion Speedway in 1973 so, I have known Carroll for nearly 50 years. What I remember most about him is not the work he did, which was impressive, but the man he was. He would always make you feel good when you would see him, with that smile and upbeat personality. In recent years, I would always look forward to seeing him at the track or the PRI Show where we would talk about old times. My memories of Carroll will always make me smile, and I will surely miss my friend.
