Tragedy for Glen Helen Owner and His Family

by

As news reports start to flesh out more details on the plane crash in Butte, Mont., that killed 14 people it’s now known that Bud Feldkamp and his family have suffered a horrible tragedy. Feldkamp, the owner of Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif., has confirmed with the Associated Press that two of his daughters and their families were lost in the crash. (A couple of stories here and here.) The other victims were also members of a Durham, Calif., family. Good God, there’s no possible way to fathom the horror of that reality.

Just last week Feldkamp took part in Malcolm Smith’s protest against the youth ATV/bike ban by buying an ATV for his grandson Luke. Perhaps it’s because of my recent interaction with him that this is so incredibly jarring to me — beyond the sheer horribleness of such an accident. It’s also just devastating when anyone loses a family member to tragedy. We here at Dealernews offer our most sincere sympathy to the families involved.
