06/30/03  Ronnie Reed  -  New Orleans, Louisiana  -  Reed Performance Motorsports

Monday, June 30th, 2003 we lost a dear, dear friend and a wonderful Superformance family member, Ronnie Reed... brother of fellow Superformance driver and dealer Doug Reed, in Louisiana.

Tragically, during a cardiovascular stent revision, one of many surgeries that Ronnie has undergone of this type, the stent unfortunately perforated an artery. Due to an ensuing tropical storm the hospital was unable to rush a cardiovascular surgeon there in time to save Ronnie. His birthday was just the day before.

We send our condolences to Ronnie's wife Linda, Brother Doug, Connie and the entire Reed family. Ronnie will be deeply missed.

- Rest easy, good friendů keep an eye on all of us.
