SCORE: Coyne/Collins/Sohren MM6 [ SCORE '05 San Felipe 250 ]

Been scrambling'/mashin' to dig up old iTunes videos, yes way back to SCORE '05 San Felipe. Pistol Pete was sporting Speedway wrap in his TT #2. Start of race at MM6 (after Zoo Road?) at a big hole, chasing TT #5 (Travis/Marty Coyne) & TT #12 (Brian Collins). He was always a competitive driver in terms of driving ability, he just lacked the funds/Sponsorship to take it

[ his Racing Program -- fine-tuning race-prep, hiring a professional crew..not volunteers, etc ]

to the next level

Latter was what I was working on for him we were both INDEPENDENTLY in touch with entities at DoD (Dept of Defense). DoD had called him, my old college alumni have a HEAVY presence in current Offroad Racing Technology (IRIDIUM based vehicle-tracking, Youtube distribution of video-content)

Here is the video from Geiser Shop '04 Xmas Party, he was owner of Speedway karting

SCORE: Pete Sohren [ Geiser Shop '05, Xmas party ]

Like Jesse Jones, they were Phoenix area residents who got personal attention/service from the Geiser Bros. Jesse was also in attendance, just glowing over his truck being built

Jones Motorsports: Geiser Brothers Xmas party [ Geiser Shop '05 ]

It was a really COOL party, Rick/Jeff are great people & accommodated my requests. I gave Rick some early 90's Offroad Racing swag (posters, etc), he gave me Geiser Bro t-shirt & cap. Pete was a really COOL dude, commanding an audience (he came across as a leader, see above video) -- describing the CNBC 2004 Baja 1K experience. Bobby Baldwin was involved (I believe he funded the CNBC TV thing).

Later on, Pete was manning the shrimp taco booth outside the Geiser Shop. Man, I can't believe this all went down 14 yrs ago! Lots has changed since then, lot of us have gotten older..LOL Pete looked youthful then, plus NO mullet!

Is that his daughter in the below pic? Which one?

9 months ago at Cameron Steel's Baja HQ grand opening. My photo of Pete, on the live webcam panel, left table... Later I chatted with him, an easy guy to talk to. Told him I was a fan of his Truck Night in America show.

Im so glad we did those shows last year with Pete. He had always wanted to do a show like that again and he was a big reason I even started doing them. It was his idea to do the San Felipe preview show.

Someone made a video tribute to F1 drivers


Someone should do the same for Pistol Pete, Steve Centurioni (died in pre-running accident prior to xxx Mint 400, burned to death..someone erected a stone obelisk aka "The Monument"), others

My Immortal
Evanescence

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone
These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me
You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me
These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me
I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me, I've been alone all along
When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
You still have all of me, me, me

His heart is now in your hands.
Do not lose it and do not break it
So as not to carry along the night roads
ash of love in the hands, knocking feet in the blood
His pulse is now in your eyes
do not lose it and do not break it.



Did You Know You
MakSim

I'm so used to living by you alone, by you alone ...
Meet the dawn and hear how you wake up not with me ...
I felt so easy to breathe in the open window ...
And to repeat to her only one thing:
Do you know? Along the night roads
walked barefoot with no pity
His heart is now in your hands.
Do not lose it and do not break it
So as not to carry along the night roads
ash of love in the hands, knocking feet in the blood
His pulse is now in your eyes
do not lose it and do not break it.
And in January, the gray rain beats against his window.
Let not hug me, but remembers all the same.
And may my name casually say out loud.
And let him keep silent that he still remembers.
And behind the window the damned rain burns the lights.
My tender boy, forgive me for this shiver.
And let through the tears whispered a quiet farewell.
Do not forget
Do not forget
Do you know? Along the night roads
walked barefoot with no pity
His heart is now in your hands.
Do not lose it and do not break it
So as not to carry along the night roads
ash of love in the hands, knocking feet in the blood
His pulse is now in your eyes.
do not lose it and do not break it.
Do you know? Along the night roads
walked barefoot with no pity
His heart is now in your hands.
Do not lose it and do not break it
So as not to carry along the night roads
ash of love in the hands, knocking feet in the blood
His pulse is now in your eyes
don't lose it ...

Я так привыкла жить одним тобой, одним тобой...
Встречать рассвет и слышать как проснешься не со мной...
Мне стало так легко дышать в открытое окно...
И повторять ей лишь одно:
Знаешь ли ты? Вдоль ночных дорог
шла босиком не жалея ног
Сердце его теперь в твоих руках.
Не потеряй его и не сломай
Чтоб не нести вдоль ночных дорог
пепел любви в руках, cбив ноги в кровь
Пульс его теперь в твоих глазах
не потеряй его и не сломай.
И в январе пуcть бьется серый дождь к нему в окно.
Пусть обнимает не меня, но помнит все равно.
И пусть случайно мое имя вслух произнесет.
И пусть молчит что все же помнит.
А за окном сжигает фонари проклятый дождь.
Мой нежный мальчик ты прости меня за эту дрожь.
И пусть сквозь слезы прошептала тихое прощай.
Не забывай
Не забывай
Знаешь ли ты? Вдоль ночных дорог
шла босиком не жалея ног
Сердце его теперь в твоих руках.
Не потеряй его и не сломай
Чтоб не нести вдоль ночных дорог
пепел любви в руках, cбив ноги в кровь
Пульс его теперь в твоих глазах.
не потеряй его и не сломай.
Знаешь ли ты? Вдоль ночных дорог
шла босиком не жалея ног
Сердце его теперь в твоих руках.
Не потеряй его и не сломай
Чтоб не нести вдоль ночных дорог
пепел любви в руках, cбив ноги в кровь
Пульс его теперь в твоих глазах
не потеряй его...

Eva Cassidy was 1 of the greatest unknown vocalists. Died of cancer at 33.

There's a uncanny parallel to Offroad Racing -- The Greatest Unknown Sport ("best kept secret")

"Our little wonder in the desert"
-- Ryan Arciero

"Chasing sunsets & trophies"
-- Curt Leduc

Our little wonder in the Desert also had a "greatest unknown personality, humanitarian, racer, chassis builder, husband, father, human being, character, comedian, etc"

Man, what a guy..WHAT A LIFE!

Played this at my husband's funeral last year. My heart still cries his name everyday. I can only hope that someday I will hold him in my arms again. Where troubles melt like lemon drops and the clouds are far behind me. I will be looking for him.

Pete's life should be celebrated

"Live Life at Full"
-- Orange Crush advertising slogan

He lived everyday to the max, especially with his passion for Offroad.

"HE WOULD NOT GIVE UP. I was proud of that N. Vietnamese soldier. He gave me a living example of what a MAN should be. If you have a BELIEF..a REAL BELIEF, you should be willing to DIE FOR IT"
-- Charles Strong, Army Specialist 4, Vietnam conflict, "The 'Bloods of Nam" PBS documentary

America is slacking (millennial crap), but it's the FAILED LEADERSHIP (politicians, gatekeepers, etc) who have created a vacuum:

NO role-models ("heroes")

Deep down, Pete was a hero. He was a leader (who commanded respect, audience, attention). See that Geiser Shop '05 Xmas video

It's BEAUTIFUL, I'T MADE CRY, REMEMBERING MY HUSBAND THAT PASSED A YEAR AGO, AND MY PARENTS THAT I HAVE LOST AS WELL! I REMEMBERED PLAYING THE VIOLIN WHEN I WAS A YOUNG GIRL!

I just can't believe it. He's probably thinking the same thing I am, "Killed by a golf cart? WTF??"

Sb4, this would make an awesome T shirt, and a great way to raise money. Who can make it happen? I will buy 4 right now.

She becomes her music. It washes over her and sinks into her skin. Her connection with what she is playing makes me so envious of the sheer passion of what she feels when playing her music. A joyous, talented, passionate pianist of the highest order. Play on angel, play on.
^^^ Remarkable parallel to what Pete was doing ("playing with Desert Toys") in Offroad Racing.

"It washes over him & sinks into his skin. His connection what he is playing make me so envious the sheer passion of what he feels when playing his Craft. A joyous, talented, passionate artist of the highest order. Play on artist, play on"

This should be played at the conclusion of his (well attended) memorial, as people are filing out

Thanks -- I throw this out there. Starting today, I will donate 100% of the sales of this coloring book for the next 30 days to this fund. So if we sell 100 of them over the next 30 days, I'll donate the entire $895 to the fund (they are $8.95 ea). No limit to number sold. Vintage Off-Road Racing Coloring Book
Just bought the coloring book. I know a couple rad kids in Idaho will enjoy that. good on ya. I am still shocked about the news on Pistola. I respected his crazy-arse opinions and gnarly hair. I thought I had a lot, but he had me beat. Can't believe he's gone. I know what it's like to be there when your dad goes too early and those girls are gunna have a rough go of it. I still have dreams, but most of them good now, not so bad (9+ years).

race like hell up there Pete, and look up my dad if you need a crew chief!
