    Tim was a great man and racer, we raced with him every year but this one at the World Fuel altered Nats in Iowa. He was a hell of a driver and showman, he ran an altered powered by a big block Chevy, and always ran a healthy dose of nitro. If memory serves me right he won the event in 2006, that was the first year. Part of me is very happy we weren't running this event this year, I would have hated to see this happen. we were in the lanes last year side by side, I talked with him the entire time. Again, he will be missed by many, my thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Tim.

    Nitro crew chief; when you were runnin' there ,,was Denny Prochaska ,from Iowa Falls , runnin' his Fuel Altered Too ?? i was on his pit crew back in the day when he was running the "Tasmanian Devil" Top Fuel FED car ,and later his RED Top Alky Car ,,i'm from Iowa ,(Marshalltown & Des Moines) ,,,i went to Eddyville's 1/8 mile track alot back then ,,still have a friend that races there ,,Dave Schafer and his son runnin' Pro Stock ,,i didn't know Tim Hay ,,,but i vagley remember his Dad ,,can't remember his first name right now ,,been too long i guess ,,back in the '70's i had the "Boat-A-Rama" boat shop on 2nd ave & the river in Des Moines ,,,,
    Hard to imagine anyone getting so outa shape on Eddyvilles 1/8 miler to get killed ,,i remember when Karl Moyer bought it ,,he installed a ton of new safety stuff ,,just for this reason ,,he was running a '37 Chevy ( Ex Cannon Willys with a Chevy Grille ) Pro Mod back then ,,
    Prayers go out to Tim Hays family & friends ,,may he have a fun time at that "Drag Strip In The Sky" ,,R.I.P.Man,,

    Tim was a great friend and pal to my son who has worked with the Fuel Altered group for years doing photography and being one of the guys, when my son expressed an interest in getting an NHRA license, Tim and brother Benny were quick to offer up a gas injected altered for my son to license in.. several trips to the drag strip over a period of time with Tim leading the way with patience and concern for safety gradually brought my son up to the point of making full runs and netting a license, something my son could only dream of .. Tim of course was one that signed off on the license .. unfortunately my son was at Eddyville Iowa for the race, having left Boise Idaho from the Nightfire Nats nostaligia meet making the long trip just to see his hero in action (Tim was the defending champ from last year), it was the final round and Tim wanted that win badly but it was not to be, my son of course shooting photos trackside saw it happen and it was a very horrific accident and one you don't want to ever witness but made even worse when it's your friend and hero in the drivers seat .. he will be missed ..

    Tim was pure class.My heart is so heavy right now It's hard to put into words what a great person he was and he was aheck of a driver.He probably had the baddest true chevy on the planet. My love to his wife Candy and their three children(all 3 grown). Folks are already posting about Tim on the website. I'm sure there will be some great storys coming up cause if there was anybody to go on the road with or just hang with at the races Tim and his family and crew were it. I know I have few.
    Tim I love you bro.....Shannon

  29. My sincere condolences to his family. Tim was always one of the guys that you could tell really loved running with the the Outlaw Fuel Altereds. They all know how dangerous those cars can be and they do it for the love of it. Thanks for the memories Tim, RIP.....
