Service planned at school Herbert boys attended

A memorial service for Jon and James Herbert, the sons of National Hot Rod Association Top Fuel driver Doug Hebert who died in an automobile crash in Cornelius Saturday morning, has been set for Wednesday at the school the boys attended.

The service will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at SouthLake Christian Academy at 13901 Hager's Ferry Road in Huntersville, N.C.

The family visitation will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Raymer Funeral Home at 16901 Old Statesville Road in Huntersville.

Doug and Sonnie Herbert, the parents of 17-year-old Jon and 12-year-old James, issued a statement late Saturday night after Doug returned from his team's test in Phoenix.

The family has asked the memorial donations be made in their sons' names to Speedway Children's Charities. The address for that organization is 5555 Concord Parkway South, Smith Tower, Suite 336 Concord, N.C. 28027.

Donations also can be made online at
