View Full Version : God Speed Old Friend

Earlier tonight, a friend of mine called to say her uncle, one of Texas World Speedway's principal owners, Richard Conole, passed away yesterday. Dick celebrated his 70th birthday only a few weeks ago.

Janet and I visited with Dick on several occassions. He and his wife, Sharyn, were of the best sort, full of love for all the passionate drivers they encountered across the country over the years.

He is dearly missed already and we have his family in our prayers. Services should be scheduled soon.

wow...sorry to hear Gary. I'm sure the open-track world is mourning a great person. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. :(

I saw this on another board, in all the track time I have at TWS over the years I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Conole but everyone I've spoken with said he was a great person. I'm sure he will be missed.

My condolences to his friends and family for their loss.
