Just over a week ago, Friday, June 8th, to be exact, we got the horrible news that H's cousin, David, had been involved in a horrible pit accident before the races started that night. He was having problems getting his tire to inflate and set correctly, so he pumped the pressure up to 95psi. When the tire finally seeded it exploded and broke the wheel which slammed against his head causing serious head trauma, killing him instantly. It has been a long hard week, but today we saw just how many lives he touched. The memorial was at the racetrack, and the grandstands were full. Fifteen hundred people turned out to say their good-byes. Never before have I seen so many people at a funeral, and for one so young. He was only 30 years old.
You will be missed, Davey-Dave.
