Memorial for Carl Ruth, drag racing legend.

1y ago

Carl Ruth, of NHRA and Maple Grove Raceway drag racing fame, passed away yesterday after suffering a massive stroke. He was one of the founders of an historic and important race track and had a winning drag racing career. He is survived by his wife Ilene who desperately needs our help. We set up a GoFundMe page for their family and I hope that we can spread the message and garner some support from the Brotherhood of Speed. If you love cars, love racing, and believe that our love of petrol or gas makes us a tribe, please take a moment to read this. We ask that you help however you can and at least share the message. Let's see if we can make a difference and give Carl a proper send off. Thank you. Check out the video of Carl's '56 Ford Crown Victoria Funny Car getting a bit out of shape.
