I'm afraid I lost my cousin last night. He rolled his pickup on a country road and was pinned underneath. Our entire family was planning a party for his son and wife, who are expecting a baby in 3 weeks, who happens to be receiving my cousin's name to boot. Party canceled and a funeral planned. I'm still in shock that this could happen. This guy ran cars balls to the walls every week, used to box, and basically lived life in 5th gear. He left his mother, 2 brothers, 1 sister, 2 sons, 1 daughter, and a grandson due in 3 weeks.

He was an avid racer from Concordia, KS. He raced enduro around Kansas and Nebraska. Tonight in Minneapolis, KS where he raced quite frequently, they are giving respects to him by running a ghost car, having a silent lap, running his banner, and displaying his finals trophy from last year.

If you could, please send some kind thoughts to my family, as we lost a special piece last night.

Last night was pretty rough. My cousin was supposed to race at the Minneapolis Raceway last night. They were handing out checkered flags to everyone in the audience, 07 stickers, and all the other racers had Martin's 07 number on their cars as tribute. They had a lady get up and sing Jesus take the Wheel. They ran a race with the "Missing Man" car in tribute as well. I don't know how his boys sat through it. It was very very sad, but they said goodbye in their own way.

The raceway is having a memorial race for his family sometime in the future.

Anyway, thanks for the prayers everyone, and allowing me to grieve on here.

We'll miss you Martin

Sympathies. Lost a cousin of my own to a rollover accident when he was 16. They buried him on my birthday, and to this day none of his family can look at me because of the reminder.

Prayers to you and yours.

09-03-2008, 08:35 AM
Here's my best wishes for you and your family. Be strong and welcome the newcomer. Hope your cousin finds eternal happiness.

Sorry to hear that man. Prayers to ya'.

What else can you ask?

A loss is never easy but knowing he was unafraid to tackle life at full speed and truly own every minute is inspirational.
