Rick Ward long time Polaris factory rider died in a motorcycle accident in 2009. Certainly one of the best hill climbers of his generation. I did not know him but I got to see him race a few times. RIP

I had forgot all about Wildcard. Thanks for posting.

Scott once you get all these posts will SW continue with adding them to a area that will not just be a thread...ie. a Memorial category or something that people can go to and not need to search for this thread.

I hope so. That would be great. I hope likes that idea and pushes for that.

Sorry Scott guess I misread your post. I honestly don't know if he was.
No worries. It's possible that he was, I just don't recall.

I think a memorial section is a great idea. Maybe each one could have a thread or section with pics, stories ect....

Good thread, kinda sad around the holidays. Thinking of all the people missing family members, dads ect.
