Vicci Remembers a Champion - Scott Kalitta
Sunday, 22 June 2008 00:00


We at Vicci consider our customers to be family. Through the process of conducting our business, we've had the pleasure of getting to know our clients and forming friendships that will last a lifetime. Some of our closest racing friends come from within the walls of NHRA's Kalitta Racing team. All members of the Kalitta team and family will remain in our hearts and prayers.

I met Scott Kalitta a few years ago. I hadn't worked directly with him on any of the Team Kalitta projects so the first time he came up and introduced himself to me, I remember being surprised that he knew who I was. He was friendly, open and laid back. Since that day, he has always gone out of his way to say hello and give me a friendly hug whenever I see him at a race. Sadly, I didn't see Scott last week when I was at the Joliet race as he had already left for the evening by the time I made it to the Kalitta pit area. I remember thinking, "I'll be sure to catch him next race."

We'll keep our memories of Scott Kalitta near to our hearts, as we keep his family and friends in our prayers. Scott, we'll catch you next race.
