Parrish On Brian Montieth: ‘He Gave It His All’

WESTMINSTER, Pa. – Jerry Parrish will never forget Feb. 29, 2004, when the second chapter of his racing life sailed into turn one at Lincoln Speedway and unleashed a determination that would become hallmark for years to come. “When you watched him, it was exciting,” Parrish said. Whether Montieth is fully retired from racing or not remains unknown, as Parrish and the now 46-year-old driver will go their separate ways in 2021. Parrish and Montieth racked up 83 wins and eight Lincoln track championships since that eventful opening day in Abbottstown, Pa., in 2004. It all began when Parrish, a former racer himself, parked next to Montieth in the late 1990s and early 2000s at Lincoln Speedway. In return, intentionally or not, Montieth helped Parrish into the most rewarding chapter of his life. “I knew if I was driving and if he was driving, I couldn’t see some of the awesome things he could do,” Parrish said.
