Brian Hamel Obituary, Death- There are some individuals in the world of racing whose contributions extend much further than the roar of the engines and the excitement of the race itself. One of these people was Brian Hamel, who was esteemed for his contributions to the Good to Go Racing community. A man whose commitment, talent, and unshakable dedication have left an indelible stamp on the world of racing has passed away, and it is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to him.
Brian Hamel was more than just a fan of racing; he was a true master behind the wheel, particularly when it came to operating a grader. Brian Hamel was an enthusiast for racing, but he was also a true master behind the wheel. It was quite surprising to see how naturally skilled he was with big gear and how deftly he handled it. It was a skill that he had received from his father, Ed Hamel, who was also a well-known and respected figure in the industry.
The two Hamels, working together, were instrumental in the conception and establishment of the East 40 Motorplex, a venue whose name has become inextricably linked with exhilarating auto racing competition. They have contributed everything they have, from the very beginning, to create this safe sanctuary for racing. Sadly, Ed Hamel has also left this world, leaving behind a legacy that Brian was resolute to carry on after his passing.
Brian Hamel did not miss a single event that took place at the East 40 Motorplex throughout the course of an unbelievable period of nine years. It would be an understatement to say that he was dedicated to the cause. The dirt lanes and tractor pullers benefited from Brian’s undivided attention throughout the course of both weekends and numerous hours preceding up to each competition, during which he spent time making sure that everything was in tip-top shape.
The concert went off without a hitch thanks to Brian’s tireless efforts behind the scenes to make sure everything ran well. He was the unsung hero who made sure that the high-powered vehicles racing on the track had enough of room to maneuver and a racing surface that had been expertly manicured. Through his mastery of the grader, he was able to transform the unleveled dirt into a course that was nothing short of a masterpiece. A course that was as hooking as any dirt course in the entire sport despite being as flat as stone.
The results of Brian’s labor were able to be seen by anybody who had the opportunity to attend the races held at East 40 Motorplex. Because to his commitment and craftsmanship, an ordinary dirt track was transformed into a revered location for racing enthusiasts. Because of his efforts, the race was not only exciting, but it was also risk-free for everyone who participated in it.
The great sense of grief that we feel at this time fills us as we say goodbye to Brian Hamel. His absence will leave a gaping hole in the hearts of everyone in the racing community. On the other hand, we will always remember him with an amazing sense of gratitude for the endless hours of toil, dedication, and enthusiasm that he poured into his craft and the world of racing.
We would like to extend our gratitude to Brian for being the driving force behind East 40 Motorplex, for maintaining the levelness and smoothness of the roads, and for ensuring that the windrows were high and compact. Your legacy will continue to live on in the roar of the engines, the cheers of the crowd, and the hearts of every racing enthusiast who had the good fortune to be present during one of the events at which you displayed your wonderful work.
