I was about 9 years old when Dave went to Indy in 1964. Having read about his racing success on the west coast, I was sure that he would excell at Indy after a couple of years racing in the 500; it was stunning for me to have heard the tragic news about his untimely passing on lap 2 of the "64" 500. I believe that Dave felt obligated to Mickey Thompson, when he knew that the car was not handling properly, yet he made his decision to follow through on his commitment to race it.

To Dave’s wife and his son, Dave was one of my early hero’s, and I will never forget about him;

Sincerly, Geoffrey Handel, Clifton, NJ.
