Buddy Ingersol dead
« on: April 02, 2012, 09:59:12 am »
Not the big name like Grumpy but heard last week Buddy Ingersol has died too. Buddy was a friend whose shop was next door to my office in the 90's. I had no idea he was a big time drag racer until I googled him a couple of years ago and learned he turned the drag world upside down with the turbocharger several years ago.  He was just Buddy to me and a heck of a good guy. He was into Mercury lead sleds and restoring old gas pumps the last several years and usually saw him at the local shows. I understand his son is crew chief for some big name but can't remember who.
