I want you to know how we appreciate all of you. I, for one, am really going to miss you. But for me, this ended the great run that Bob, and his brother had. Not because I have any fear of racing. I started this venture for them. It lasted for many years because of them and you. It is ending for me because Bob and I have accomplished everything we can in regard to road racing and this event just has taken the wind out of my sails. I think you all understand or you will. We had a great run. But you all were all a big part of "run". My life was enriched by you all and this event, so, again, thank you.  Rick Kester, a long time navigator for Bob

There are no words that will bring you comfort at this time.

In registration the other day Robert and Bunny shared a story with me about Phil. When Phil came in about 20 minutes later, I teased him about the story and asked why after almost 15 years I had never heard it. We all laughed and I will never forget his boyish smile that day. I was so struck when the news hit the pits. Our lives change with the blink of an eye.

Rick, Robert, Amy and Bowser Family, I send you my condolences.

Also to Team Old Farts, You will all greave and heal TOGETHER, because that is what you do. You know you have always been my favorites. Love you all.
