Scott Summers introduced me to Earl almost 20 years ago. He provided many unknown young men a chance to race and be noticed.
A tough business man who would get from you all you would let him have. He will be missed.

Earl was one of the few who could truly say "I did it my way". Common sense, tempered with a heart of compassion for many. He will be missed by many. My condolences to Vera and Check.

Earl was my Buddy/ Back in the 80's, we had a big time Racing NASCAR and ARCA Race Cars. I have been sad for 20 years that we didn't keep going. We would have been great together! When it came to Racing, we thought a lot alike. I will always miss Earl and I wish God's Love to Vera, Check and Earl's Family.
