About Edwin Coggins:
Edwin Coggins was born in 1947 in Echols County, Georgia. His love for racing was surpassed only by his love for farming. His father was a lifetime farmer, and Edwin followed in his footsteps with his older brothers Felton and Gerald. The three brothers built a family farm which included his three nephews, his two daughters, and one son-in-law. The farm was called Coggins C Farms.

Edwin was an avid fan of dirt track racing. His love for the sport began in his teenage years when he watched the sport at the Thunderbowl Speedway in his hometown of Valdosta, Georgia. In his later years, he and his brother Felton enjoyed traveling over several states to watch their favorite type of racing - the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

He was married to Patsy (Pat) Carter for 43 years and had two daughters, Jade (Kyle) Vinson and Kelsey (Phil) Corbett. He was blessed with three grandchildren who he loved dearly - Hunter, Kendall, and Hayley.

On February 5, 2014 while visiting the Golden Isles Speedway in Brunswick, Georgia, Edwin died of a heart attack. His family is comforted by the fact that he died doing what he loved most. He will be missed by all of his family and friends!
