  7. Just saw that on the NHRA website. Sad to hear. Meet her at the museum in 1985, and later at a IHRA race in Scribner. Very nice lady

    Very sad, she was with him thoughout his drag racing career, she was the one who insisted he wear a jacket instead of a t-shirt before that terrible fire at Chester, he said otherwise he would have died......sympathies to Don and the whole family.
     
  10. Very sad. I allways heard she was a real nice Lady! Prayers go out to Don and his family.

    I met Pat in 1964 at Thompson Raceway in Ohio. She was selling T-shirts out of the back of Don's pickup. Very nice lady. I wish I still had the T-shirt.
    My prayers are with you Don and your girls. RIP

    So Sad. She was Don's world, but had struggled health wise for quite some time. May she rest in peace.
