MAILROOM (RacerX, September-04)


"It seems as though every now and then a tragedy strikes the motocross community, like the losses of Jason Ciarletta and Jono Porter. However, it doesn't really phase you when someone becomes seriously injured or passes on like it does when it's close to your heart. Last Thursday morning one of my close friends from the track died in an automobile accident and it shocked everyone from the Northern region of District-16. His name was Chad Early. Chad raced the 125B class and was an excellent rider. He was very popular around the pits and was friends with almost everyone in the minis and 125cc Jr. classes. I can't imagine what his parents are going through right now. It's every parent's dream to have a child like Chad."
