Re: Doug Hoye Bandimere Tech Official
I did not expect this when i opened this thread.... Doug definitely had a one in a million personality, and i will miss him out at the track. Doug and Tom (vega) were the first track officials to ever tech my truck out at Bandimere, back in 2004 when i started racing.
At truckfest a few years ago, Doug laughed when i went to get my punchcard to run in the pro truck class (seriously, who wouldnt laugh), and was still laughing when i went back to collect on my 1/4 finalist winnings. I know that Doug will be missed, not only by his family, his friends, and his foes, but also by me, and almost every other racer out at Bandimere.
