RIP Art Savedera

Curtis Guise

Sad to hear that Art Savedera passed away last night. Art was the tech director for SCORE and worked as the safety/tech inspector for many promoters over the years. Art was dedicated to making sure we were all safe when we race and I always enjoyed talking with him back when I used to race. My condolences to the Savedera family.

If you have any photos or stories about Art post them here.

I have no info about how he passed away, only what his son Guy posted on FB and IG.
"My dad passed away last night. I spent the whole afternoon with him. We watched wrestling, looked at funny pics, laughed, ate dinner together and when I left I said I love you to him. I could not have asked for a better last day with my dad."

My condolences to Guy and the whole family, Art was truly a great guy and would give you the shirt off his back no questions asked. With our off road family losses lately, Heaven must have needed a tech inspection. RIP.

Can't believe it. One of my favorite people in the sport. He would take the time to chat every time he saw you. He would always chat at tech to the point where the other tech guys would tell him hey you need to get back to work. Going to miss him.

We hung with him in Ensenada talking old times for about 30 mins. He was a good guy and the sport will miss him. RIP Art and our thoughts and prayers are with the family

I never really knew Art personally until just before the 500 when he came to retag our car and I got to spend an hour talking with him. Then I saw him down at the 500 at tech and talked to him again. Really glad I got that time, he was a really inspirational person who loved this sport more than almost anyone I know. RIP Art, thanks for all you have done.
