RACING TO THE FUTURE
At Len Corcoran’s Excavating, they like to put people before profit. But did you know that this was all made possible because of a love of racing? Len Corcoran was making about $35 a week operating a bulldozer for an excavating company located just north of Kingston. At night, he made that much and more driving a race car on the local circuit. With the money he made racing cars, Len was able to break free from his employer, buy his own bulldozer and begin a venture that has grown, changed and prospered for more than five and a half decades.
ADDITIONAL CHARITY WORK
Len Corcoran Excavation has supported various charities and causes for the last 20 years. Notable initiatives include sponsoring a team in the Limestone Classic Hockey event (2010 Feb Fest at Springer Market Square), competing in the One Lap for Cancer Research and the Cannonball One Lap of America motor-sports events raising in excess of $500,000 for cancer research, and participating in live & silent auctions to support B’nai Brith and other charities. LCE continues to support the Kingston Partners for a Safe Community Safety Group, promoting safe jobsites, information jobsites, information exchange and peer tutoring with the goal of making Kingston a safer place to live work and play.
And now they can add St LAC to the fold. Thanks to the generosity of Dan Corcoran the club was able to purchase the Honda CRX Si racing car that will serve to teach would-be racers and help expand the ranks of automobile racers in our area.
