I remember Red from the first race that I had attended. He was racing a 5-1600 in a point to point race in Mexico. The man was fast.

God speed to Red and condolences to his family.

Red was a great man and even a better friend. Always there when i needed him. I was able to do alot of miles with red, thats been some of the best memories anyone could ask for. I was fortunate to spend his last days with him and that is something i will never forget !!!! "rip" red, you will be missed. My love goes out to his family......

Sad news. Red was a cool guy. I met Red in my first 5/1600 race too and his first short course race. I trashed the whole side of his car when I got sideways in a turn and then threw it in reverse side swiping his car with the corner of my rear bumper. Tore it open like a sardin can front to back. He didn't even get mad about it. Just told me his car was an old piece of junk and he wanted a new one anyway. He ended up hanging around the shop after that. He bought a new 5/1600 and we changed some roofs for him over the years. RIP Red.
