That pretty crazy to hear that. The man loved Hot Wheels racing. My condolences to his family.

Aw man, that's a bummer to hear. Thanks for bringing it to attention, BLR.

Uncle Joe contributed a lot and enjoyed the hobby tremendously. I always had positive experiences interacting with him. Condolences to his family and all that loved him.

Yeah Joe and I just talked last week. He was a real personable guy, and I am in shock to hear that he's passed away. The Bible states that life is as a vapor. Meaning that we are here and then we are not. I pray you guys do repent and look to the Lord for salvation (John 3:16-17), and experience the blessing of forgiveness, and salvation that's found only in Christ.


Sad to hear.

A decent guy and good contributor to the diecast community. Sends my best thoughts and wishes.

Joe was a great guy and will be greatly missed.

I watched his last race video again last night. He was so happy that he bought a new setup for his track. Now it never will be run on.

They say 30g & 40g stock classes are neglected. It was Joe's specialty.

Sad news. He raced in our track a couple times and was very active in the community. Always seemed like a nice guy

Rest in peace sir.
