Default Sad news in Crossville

I have just heard that DR, that owns MSA, passed away last night. I don't know much more than that. If you have a link to his site, you might check it out, they might know more there. Those that knew him, he was a really nice guy. Our prayers go out to his family.

DR was a great guy, and will be missed by all that knew him.

If anyone gets any info on a service for him please let me know. I want to at very least send flowers to the family. The R/C hobby has suffered a great loss.

Funeral is on Sunday at Bilbery's Funeral Home on Adams Rd. Viewing is at 1:00 to 3:00 and funeral is at 3:00. This was what Hacksaw posted.

From what I have been told one of D.R's requests on his message board was for everyone to keep his track going. I think it would be nice for all of us to get together and go over and race out of respect for someone as genuine and kind as D.R. Anyone up for going over in the next few weeks speak up.

I could go on the 20th. If there is enough for a class, they will run it. For those with stadium trucks like T4/XXXT trucks, there is a big class of those that already race. 27 turn motors are more than enough there. Other classes that I know of is pan cars(4 cell), legends, purpose built dirt oval cars. This is all on the "Little Bristol" carpet track. Dustin, I think you have a great idea in going.

Default DR

DR was put to rest today just a few miles away from his home in Crossville TN. He will be GREATLY missed. His youngest son Curt will be running the distributer and the Track. They will be racing this coming Saturday.

My Heart goes out to D.R.'s family and friends.
