Below are two pictures of how I will always remember my buddy Tracy Hawkins , the one on the left was T- Hawk at my race , I asked him too be on my radio , he was excited to do so.
The best part was when I ask if we could take a picture together , he said with a grin of course as he was walking away he said I’m (proud of you ) you drove good David￼￼￼ .
The second picture says it all ..
This is how much he loved life , family, friends and boat racing.
