....man....I darn near lost it when John was talking about the EMT in the ambulance. As much as I'd like to say, "I can't wait for this to debut"....I also know it'll be hard to watch.

Props to you Bobby....I know this must have been very difficult for you to do....but, you're getting REALLY GOOD at the video editing part....

This is one of my favorite video ideas that has ever been presented. I love the diversity of people that the series covers and can't wait for this season to debut!

I'm with you Tim. I enjoyed being around Eric a little and just accepted he'd be around a long time - like other racers. But God decided otherwise.

Every year at Sonoma we have the dinner on Thursday night and I've been to everyone. John always speaks and I don't know how he does it. And he does so with clarity and honesty. Always, always there are many tears in the room.

As a Dad, John Medlen is a superstar.

Eric definitely was an awesome guy. He use to come over to the slot car track I race at in Buena Park Ca and run his 1/24 scale dragster. I remember one night he had an idea that he wanted to try out and he went back to the JFR shop "when it was out here in California" and made a set of wheels and tires and returned to the track the next day to try them out. He was always in a good mood and a lot of fun to be around. He is definitely missed by so many of us on the NHRA tour.

Here it is folks.....

The first ever Legends The Series live audience premier went exceptionally well. Folks smiled, laughed, cried, and in the end smiled again with memories of Eric Medlen....

I watched this on a flight this morning and I was sobbing like a girl. Very well done and very emotional listening to John tell that story.
