Eerily, just like Ted Christopher, Mike was killed in a crash in his own plane today. RIP to one of the greatest to ever strap into an asphalt tour mod. What a huge loss to the racing community as a whole and especially in CT and the northeast.

Well this really sucks, as someone who grew up going to Stafford and Thompson weekly Mike was always a threat to win.

I remember the time at Stafford in the late 70's when Ritchie had two cars, and Mike drove the  straight axle mod, and Ritchie drove the independent front end one in a 100 lap feature. IIRC the was Mikes "big" break. Mike did extremely well in his career in both Mods, and the Busch North tour, wing multiple championships in both. Things like this make me think of the old saying "remember when sex was safe, and racing was dangerous". I guess that we could swap sex for flying. RIP Mike.
