Shawn hanging-out in the pit area.
Shawn was the nephew of Tom Radcliff. Shawn enjoyed chasing after his Uncle on the track. Shawn rode in the C class initially then moved up to the B's. Aaron would see Shawn at the races and over at Tom's. Shawn eventually stopped racing and we all missed seeing him at the track. Aaron would have liked getting to know Shawn more, but he didn't see Shawn much after he stopped racing. Shawn worked at Morgantown Honda and Aaron would see him there on occasion. Shawn was very upset with Aaron's passing and he, like the rest of us, did not understand why. The year 2001 was a terrible year for so many wonderful people. So much pain for all. We lost Bobby Joe Musgrove, Adam's brother, on September 11, 2001. Bobby Joe passed with injuries received from a motorcycle accident. Such a loss for Pam and Adam and his many friends. We lost Shawn on September 23, 2001. Shawn was on a motorcycle memorial run for his dear friend Bobby Joe and received injuries from an accident that took him from us. What a tragic year, it all seems like a bad dream. So hard for the families to go on, it takes a lot of effort. My heart goes out to the Musgrove's and the Radcliff's. We share something that I wish we did not. Shawn and Aaron were the same age. Both would have been 21 on their next birthday. I hope that the three of them are together... Shawn's racing number, #646, appears on the back of Aaron's head stone.
