To the teams...

I am overwhelmed by your outpouring of letters, emails and phonecalls due to my
departure from BFGoodrich Racing. The right words to express what your messages
have meant to me simply don't exist. It's been a very emotional last couple of
weeks just knowing that my last day was soon ahead and that I would be leaving a
job that I've loved for the past 22 years. Yet, a corporate decision to move
all race administration duties to Greenville, SC means that I have decided to
stay in the Akron, OH area and thus not make the move. The BFGoodrich off-road
race program will not be affected; you'll just hear a different voice on the
other end of the phone. And, Frank DeAngelo will still manage the program. has been my greatest pleasure to have worked with all of you and
I'm so proud that I had an opportunity to meet many of you. I will never
forget what it meant to be involved in off-road racing and to serve such
wonderful, kind, generous people as the off-road community. Thank you for
giving me this great honor and most of all, thank you for being such a huge part
of my life.

Sincerely, Debbie @ BFG
