FFS, they can at least mention what caused his death. Old age doesnt seem quite right.

He was a legend when I was growing up.

Very sad. RIP

I hate how the assholes made that article more of a VMAX advertisement than a respectful tribute to a fallen legend

Re: Drag Racer Jay "PeeWee" Gleason, R.I.P.

I look at a poster of PeeWee everyday in my garage, I've had it since high school in the mid '80's, it's made a few moves around the country.
That picture has inspired a few decades of burn outs.
God Speed Jay!

We're apparently the same age because as a pimple-faced high school kid, my first memory of Pee Wee was when he rode the 1983 V-65 Magna to be the FIRST-ever production bike to run a 10 second quarter mile. 10.73.

You will be missed.... and I look forward to picking your brain when (hopefully) I'm in heaven with you
