From the many of dinners out to the hundreds of bottles of whiskey we drank, from you driving 4 hours to surprise me at my 40th birthday, and the one I most remember is the time you flew to Bradenton to watch me compete at my first snowbirds race! You are truly one of the best persons I have ever met. You will forever be in my heart and there will never be a time I start my racecar and don’t think of you
