Today I lost my dad & my best friend. I can no longer call him to discuss how a race or job went, no longer seek his advice, or just get his approval for a great idea.
He bought me my first electric car, bicycle, go cart, dirt bike, first car(which I still have), but it’s the tractors and equipment that he bought me that I enjoy the most. I convinced him if he would buy a tractor I would keep his race track ready to go- he did & I have so he bought more equipment. He bought me and grandpa stuff to play on the farm with. He never complained about buying equipment; however, he did complain if it wasn’t clean. Big Larry and I always tried to fix anything we broke before we told him about it so that he would be more understanding. I’m not sure it worked, but we would tell him “if you don’t do anything you want break anything “.
His race track was what he really enjoyed and loved to promote exciting shows. He had a lot of great success and after 2010, he retired and gave me a chance to continue on what we started in 1977. I have had some enduring times the last 7 years, but he always told me that I was doing a great job for the current state of Motorsports. He and I had different styles; however, he was my sounding board. We all know that it was Russ’s way or the highway but he treated everyone the same.
As a team, we put on a lot of great shows and produced a lot of great memories. The dream team of the ‘80s & ‘90s is all gone now- so moving forward we must create another “dream team”.
He would want us to move forward and do great things- not cry about our lost. However, it is a lost, a void, and a challenge that must be faced head on.I’m just glad to have had my time with him.
RIP Dad!
RIPRussell Hackettt!
Love you always!
