    Sad to report that renowned alcohol racer and crew chief Ora Vasquez passed away this morning. A great pioneer of blown alcohol racing and even greater man. Had a big hand in the development of the modern day "fathead." Helped many a racer including myself over the years. I count myself lucky to have known him. RIP and Godspeed my friend.

    First class person. Racer, fabricator, tuner. Great rival in the late-60's early 70's A/D days. RIP
