We lost a good one in Kansas. He was a true gentleman. A fast very fast one. His bikes inspirational. His attitude admirable. I am lucky to have met him. Flattrack racing is real. The walls, the bikes, the speeds and closeness are all very real. The form of racing has not changed at all through the years. It is pure and unharnessed. The danger is always there and that is part of the race form's great allure. It is not to be taken lightly or raced with out respect for what it really is; real.

Well-said man. Tragic, heartbreaking loss.

He was a hell of a man, racer and friend! He could make that Triumph fly! He will be dearly missed buy all!
Have a shot with me for Mark!

Sorry to here that.
It makes me go cold , the reality of accidents , most of the time we pretend that it ain't there otherwise I would sit at home and not go out or do anything fun.
We just gota live as much as we can I guess.
