Jerry Dick Passed away last Saturday
« on: September 27, 2016, 11:38:48 pm »
Jerry was a long time 1968 1/2 owner & racer who passed away last Saturday at the UMTR race in PA.

He won the 1981 Gatornationals Super Stock Eliminator in a 1968 1/2 and was a long time 4 speed racer with another 1968 1/2 as well as one of the "Going Thing" 428 CJ Mustangs.

I first met Jerry back in the early '90's racing at the SuperCar Showdown events. He was a great guy and will be missed by his many friends.

Was his death "racing related"?

Cardiac arrest after making a pass, got back to his trailer and collapsed.  Very sorry to hear this, used to talk to Jerry at the track during his Super Stock days and the Columbus swap meets. Bought a few parts from him through the years, super nice guy and great to deal with. He will be missed.
