  4. Sad news indeed. I didn't know brad, but he put on a hell of a show along with his brother in the Bad News Dodge and Big Iron Plymouth. They were my personal favorite match race at the meltdown. God speed indeed!

    I was really bored with drag racing till I went to the meltdown 5 years ago. Started building this and hope to be there in 2018. Other than needing the white lettering scrubbed off, I think it fits as is. I used the SEGA rules for the build and hope to start making their events as well. Still need to get with Quain on that though.

    Loss of life is heart breaking and sad, but considering most of us will me our end at the cause of some life sucking illness. Brett went out full throttle doing something he loved and most of us would love to do to. And I truly believe that the moment before everything went wrong he had a huge smile on his face!! We should all be so lucky My best wishes to his family and friends Larry

  17. Dad and I have run the Valiant at every Meltdown so far, but its long overdue for a face lift. The only problem is building Dads gasser Dodge is eating up a shit ton of time and money.
