R.I.P. Rick and Jeff Thanks for always taking the time to speak with me at the races you will truly be missed by all your fellow competitors and the rest of the community

Wow still in shock. This is such a sad day. When Jeff raced the first season of TORC he kept his truck back here at my father's garage and stayed at our house. He tended to stay a week or so after each race. During this time my whole family fell in love
with Jeff. I rememeber we all fought who would get to cook him lunch. He would work
on his truck for a little while then ride the kids bikes around the yard doing tricks for them. His mother and father would always thank us for taking care of Jeff. It
was a great pleasure getting to know and become friends with Jeff and his family.
Rick and Jeff always had a smile that was warm and welcoming. The world lost two
great people. R.I.P. Jeff and Rick Huseman

No words are good enough. Rick and Jeff were some of the most talented guys in our Nation. Vaya con Dios my friends...and thank you for a lifetime of memories. Somehow the short course world will never be the same. I think all of us will remember the outright beauty of that black Toyota screaming by at 9,000 rpm...

My wife was just on the computer and asks me, "Do you know who Rick and Jeff Huseman are...?"

Heartbreaking news.
