Today I lost my Dad, my mentor, my hero. He got me into in off roading and racing back in 1969 at the age of 9 years old. He entered the Berrego Rough 50 on bet and won the race. I will never forget his excitement after winning that race. I will never forget my smile on my face when I got drive the car on Sunday the day after. He was such a inspiration to me to try as hard as we could to finish races. Dad I will miss and love you till the day I get to see you in the big race in the sky. Love you bigger then life.

Sorry for your loss. Carry on that legacy with your own kids or with someone elses kids, cherish the memories. I lost my dad 8 yrs ago, tough still today.

Wayne, I am sorry for your loss. Sending positive vibes your way. When we bought the Mint in 2012, we purchased photos from each year from Trackside Photo. I just did a quick search in our archives and want to make sure you to have these two photos from 1985. PM me if you would like me to send you a link for hires files.

Wayne cherish the memories and know he would always want you to be happy. God bless you brother. Racing with your children is IMO the best thing a father can do.

My very deepest condolences on the loss of your father. Losing my father was probably the hardest thing in my life. I still miss him everyday. But I still see him in the the eyes of my sons when they laugh or when I use a phrase that would have come straight out his mouth. It won't be easy ,and it will take a long time, but it will get better. Remember to just breathe when it starts to overwhelm you.

Know that we all here join with you in counting the blessings of our fathers and the time that we have been given to share with them. Peace.

Godspeed to your father. I lost my Dad 20 years ago and I still think about him at least once a week. I'm not so sad about it anymore though. It does get better. Hang in there.
