The Passing of Bruce Rogers

Our family is deeply saddened to inform all that our father Bruce Rogers has passed away Wednesday evening. As many of you know our father had a long road of recovery from the results of car accident in 2016. This January he has been rehospitalized for continued infections that he fought hard to overcome many times. We are relieved that our father’s passing was peaceful and pain free. He loved his family, and his race track more then life. Thank you all for continuing to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. ~The Roger’s family.
