Paul McMahan’s Final Call

As Paul McMahan stepped out of the trailer, his moist eyes said more than anything he could put into words. It was truly the last time he would climb out of the seat of a sprint car. After 35 years, Paul McMahan came back one last time to where it all began for him. “That was just the last time I would ever drive at Chico,” McMahan said last Saturday night. “This is the last time I will drive up here,” he said, early in the night, referring to the familiar drive up the interstate from Sacramento. He was referring to a tough night at the track, but it just as easily summed up the last 35 years. “Placerville has always been a special place for me and I always planned to drive my last race here,” said McMahan.
