lost a true friend...
In my 30 years
at the helm of Maryland International Raceway, I have had
the privilege of working with many great racers... many with
big personalities, incredible driving skills, and impressive
racing accomplishments. However, none had the spirit, heart
and caring for others as my friend, Bunny.
She was a
serious racer for sure, but she was also an incredible
ambassador to the sport of Drag Racing that we all love. The
thing I will remember most about Bunny was the one-on-one
time she spent with her fans at the back of her trailer on
every race day. She made sure everyone that wanted an
autograph or photo or simple "hello" was given the
opportunity before she would leave for the evening. There
are literally thousands of photos of children with Bunny all
around this country. For the lucky ones, they have a photo
in her car or with her helmet on, that have provided special
memories for them. My daughter, Ashley, has one from when
she was about 8 years old.
My heart aches
and I will truly miss my dear friend. We will be planning a
celebration of life with Bunny’s family, friends and fans
once this world gets back to normal and we can all come
together again. In the meantime, I have put together some
photos to share with everyone of Bunny at the track she
called her "home track", Maryland International Raceway.
Until then, be safe and be kind to others as my friend,
Bunny, was to all.
