I am not going to even begin to attempt an explanation of what happened to the heart and soul of Indy Car today in Las Vegas. Dan was a gentleman to everyone he interacted with, and always knew when to take a moment to engage. These two shots are from the endurance karting event put on at Mark Dismore’s track in New Castle. Even back then, a young Dan toiling away for Chippy, always took a moment to talk to fans of the sport. My heart is empty thinking about it.
The words that fail to come to me are pretty much expressed at Tony Johns’ Pop Off valve site. The comforting words were penned by Ashley Ewing and they can be found here:
That pretty much expresses it far better than I ever could. I am going to miss you Dano…..
