Losing Mark Lyle is a huge loss to the entire sport. Mark was one of the best people that I ever had the honor of meeting at the track. He was always fair in his rulings and I believe that he tried to look at things from a racer's prospective instead of just being a company guy. For the racers on the west coast we really got to know Mark as the Division 6 Starter. This is still unbelievable. I can still see his smile through his rubber covered face. It appears that he passed being a hero which is very appropriate. Mark will be sorely missed by many. Godspeed my friend.
