“Terrible to hear the tragic accident took the young life of Dylan Cromwell today.
I got to spend some time with his family a couple of years ago as they drove over 2 hours to come see me at a sponsor appearance to say hi and to tell me that their son had achieved his dream of working on an NHRA Nitro Funny Car team.
I tracked Dylan down in Jim Heads pit area at the next race to tell him and show him the hat I got from his parents and i could instantly tell he was from that wonderful family I had met.
Our thoughts are with the Cromwell family”
