  5. This hasnt completely sunk in yet but I loved Brian very much. We hunted, we watched countless races, I grew up watching him race and win…I fished on his boat. I stayed at his house many times, he was always a great entertainer. We communicated weekly and this leaves a giant void in my life personally. I hope and pray he is at peace and pain free. May the track be fast, the fish be plenty and the bucks be big in heaven. I love you Brian.
