    So many (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)s on here wanted him gone, they got their wish it seems for now. He can be a little bit over the top at times for sure. The guy is just as passionate about the sport as anyone involved in it. Super good with the fans and drivers.

    Hopefully he is found and is safe.

    What a terrible post. You should be embarrassed.

    They can ping his cell phone and get a close location.

    I hope he is found and I hope it was not an accident or something. Always scares me when people travel alone this day in age with all the nuts out there. There are 95% nice people and 5% bad and it takes that 1 person.

    Rick and a few others take announcing dirt races to a much higher level. Rick announces races at the same level as big time stick and ball announcers do👍

    Always a clever line from him. Always enjoyed his commentary. Hope heís found safe but missing since Thursday morning is not good.

    Hope he's going to be Ok, but two days no trace or communication doesn't look good.

    Pretty sure no one wished harm on him as a person just because they didn't like his announcing.

    Thanks for this update. I agree. Need a better system with phones.

    Hope this has a good turn out as well. Iíve never had an issue with his performance as an announcer.

    Hard to say police and phone companies need a better system without knowing more details. Phone could have died before they realized he was missing or be simply turned off.
