    RIP Tom.

    As stated in the article, he was a racer and a salesman. The first in the NHRA. I think it's safe to say that the NHRA would not be what it is today if he had not started the advertising side of the sport.

    Sad to hear as I liked to watch him race. A big loss for drag racing.

    That's sad news. I saw him recently and he wasn't looking good. He spent most of his time sitting in a golf cart. When he walked it was very slowly for a short distance.
