Someone just posted that article in a local car group on Facebook.
A lot of guys build big, bad cars and don't drive them. Some do drive them some, but never hard. Some drive them hard on the street, but don't push the limit on the track. Some take the cars to the track, but have someone else pilot them.
Ray was none of those. I saw him out at the Mile in the bee twin-charged FGT, driving the piss out of it. I distinctly remember it because that was the first time I'd smelled race fuel. My deepest condolences to his family. Godspeed, Ray...R.I.P.
Damn. There is nothing to be said......just shocked. A page in Last Lap has been set up. While I know that death of good people is inevitable, I hate adding names to that page. Especially when it's someone like Ray.
