    We lost another pioneer today

    A friends email today.

    Steve Gibbs on Facebook posted today:

    When I posted the photo of Tom Hanna's car yesterday, I knew he was fighting for his life in a North Carolina hospital. He lost that fight early this morning, as leukemia took his life. Hanna was an amazing individual...unbelievably talented and intelligent. This is an especially tough one to take, as we had developed a very close relationship in recent years. He certainly left his fingerprints on the sport. Damn!

    I always wondered what happened to Tom Hanna when he took leave of drag racing? And then when he came back with his unbelievable rail in 2002 and I saw the coverage of the build, and how fantastic the engineering and workmanship was, I figured we'd hear a bunch more after that. But again he seemed to disappear from notoriety.
    Sad to lose another extremely talented fabricator, and legend of drag racing.
