He was the true definition of a dedicated racer. 200 events a year across multiple series & disciplines including 3 starts in the Indy 500, a brief run in NASCAR in Xfinity and even 3 attempts in Cup, but most importantly a 112 time USAC Winner, ranking 5th all time behind Vogler, Foyt, Tripp & Kenyon. Its a huge loss to the community.
Debated which thread to post this in, but the Clauson family held an auction yesterday to cover various costs related to the accident. One of the items being sold was Bryan Clauson's favorite helmet. Tony Stewart bought the helmet for $32,000, then immediately gave it back to Lauren. Smoke is all class.
