Long time slot racer Jay Kisling is in the ICU and his prognosis is grim.

Your prayers are needed for one of the fiercest competitors ever to hold a controller.

Sorry to hear this. Jay used to come up to Manchester frequently to race CASRA cars. He always had a joke or two to tell.

So sorry to hear this. Only meeting Jay couple years back, I knew from the minute we met he was the kind of person I'd be associated with. 
 
Best of luck, Jay!

I know that Jay has fought back a number of times over the past years. Here is hoping he can do it again.

 

Good luck, my friend.

The whole crew at SpeedZone misses you!


Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
