A Tribute

A Tribute

This past week our Daggett Shuler Team participated in a really special event.  Wednesday evening was the 5th Annual Rusty Harpe Memorial Race at Caraway Speedway.  It was an evening we will remember for a long time.

 

Rusty Harpe was the driver of the #71 Late Model Stock Car at Caraway Speedway. He was tragically killed in a farming accident in January of 2007.  Rusty’s father, Chip Harpe, put this race together, along with his wife Lynne and many family friends, to honor his son.

Rusty was a much loved part of the racing community.  The drivers, crew, and track support personnel are a tight-knit group who care about and support each other.  Through Rusty and the whole Harpe family we were able share a experience a special bond with this community.

All of us at Daggett Shuler were proud to be part of this event since we are long time friends with the Harpe family, and I was personally acquainted with Rusty.  We enjoyed a great evening, a fun family event, and a tribute to Rusty.  We were honored just to be part of it.

The evening was truly a memorable event and a special evening.  The folks at the track treated us like family.  The members of our Daggett Shuler team who attended the race were proud that we could play a small part in such a special event.

First off I’m so glad I had this team in my corner, they helped me every step of the way and it’s much appreciated. Great great people to work with, I highly recommend them. Big shout out to Griff, Cindy and the rest of the team!
