[B][I]As I sit here and type this I still am having a hard time believing He is really gone. Jack and I had a special relationship, it was more then friends. We had a passion to do things different than everyone else. Jack would often ask me, and did the last time we were together, what we needed to do to make KARNAC better then it is. After nearly fifteen years I gave him the same answer “Nothing” He gave me that Jack smile and said “I knew you were going to say that, I was just checking”.
You see Jack’s vision of KARNAC was never to make millions of dollars or become popular. It was to build a community like none other. From day one the front page of KARNAC.com has said “Your online Racing Community” and that is what it is. A community of every aspect of racing from the fans in the stands to track owners. At one time or another KARNAC has been there. Try to imagine racing here in the last 15 years without KARNAC, think of the people you would never have met, the races you would not have gone to, the information you never would have gotten if it wasn’t for Jack and KARNAC.
Jack has left us but he will live on in the “Community” he built for us.
I would like to Thank everyone who I have talked to and who texted and e-mailed me today, you all made a very tough day a little easier.
And thank you Jack for letting me be me and for being one of the cornerstones of “Your” community…
