#75 Hurricane Hank Bassett
Very sad to report that #75 Hurricane Hank Bassett, the 4-time track Champion at Champion Speedway, has finally lost his long battle with MS.
There has been a lot of tributes on Facebook but thought, even though activity has slowed on this forum the past few years and most are on FB, that some on here may not have heard.
Hank was a great guy and an excellent rider! He was a huge help to many up and coming racers here on the East Coast and will never be forgotten!
