Remembering Art Hendrickson

We are saddened to learn of the recent passing of Art Hendrickson, owner of the #7 shown here:

Art was the owner and Pete Mourad was the driver, and theirs was the longest ongoing partnership in ATQMRA history, lasting several decades.

They raced only at Pine Brook and at the Atlantic City indoor events (back when it was called "Convention Hall"), with occasional forays to Dorney Park and Hershey Stadium.  They preferred the smaller tracks, skipping the larger venues.

Both Art and Pete were fine gentlemen, and now both are gone.  (Pete died in 2004.)  The racing community -- and the world -- are poorer for their loss.
