Over the weekend at Flippin AR, mod driver Tim Phillips lost his life racing at the track. It was a accident where a driveshaft hit him in the head. It was rare and tragic deal. I would like to say Chad Wheeler and other drivers at the track are pretty good. Chad donated his $6000 winnings to the family. Others gave also. There is a trust fund setup for Tim's children. I would like everyone to realize that what we do is dangerous and costly. Not just with money. Try to remeber that the next time you want to take someone out.

Prayers here are with this family. We can't preach safety enough in this business. And even that doesn't prevent all accidents. God bless everyone involved.
