  1. I'm sure we have a few motorsports fans here in the investing world.
    Last week Monday during testing, Eric Medlin, driver of one of 14 time Champion
    John Force Racing's 4 Top Fuel Funny Cars, was in a terrible accident.
    A few days later he died from the injuries.

    RIP. :(

    Years ago, it was proper for a racing team to "sit out" the next race in honor of a fallen driver,
    but with today's multi-million dollar sponsorships, the financial obligations and commitments make that VERY hard to do.
    However, John Force Racing, with 4 T/F Funny cars and 2 dragsters, will not participate at the NHRA Spring Nationals, in honor of Eric.

    Very cool and old school.

    I tip my hat to them.
    Well Done. :cool:
  2. I respect the team's decision.

    R.I.P. Eric
