A local racer posted this on a local MB:

"It said a lot for some of the Street Outlaw guys who drove over for the funeral. Farm Truck and his dog, Doc, Monza, Dominator, Jeff Lutz."

Cool

Doc, and Monza, knew Monte well. The last time I saw Monte was at PRI. Monza had delivered his intake manifold for Monte to rework, and they were talking with one another. Wish I would have been able to talk with him more that day, but he was busy.

I am really going to miss his no BS, direct to the point, tech advice. He would talk about other things in person, but rarely on here. Those that never got a chance to talk with Monte one on one, have really missed out. he had a good sense of humor, and was just a nice down to earth guy, that would help anyone.

RIP Monte

I got to speak to him a couple months ago on the phone and planned to meet him this spring when down at my summer place. He seemed to have a great temperament because I never could provoke a hostile response from him on here

Hard to say much except, Dam! didnt see that coming and feel for his family.

I never really grasped how deeply involved he was in the race world.

It did seem he was living the car lovers dream and doing a fine job of it.

Definitely a big loss for the racing community. Bought my first nitrous system through him years ago.
