A moment of silence for Todd Gartshore was held at the NMRA/NMCA West Coast Shootout event on July 9 at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California, while the Centerforce Camaro made a lap around the autocross displaying a checkered flag.
Gartshore, co-owner of Baer Brake Systems and a major supporter of SEMA and the performance aftermarket for decades, passed away just prior to this event where he planned to participate in Baer's Speed-Stop-Challenge. A special picture of Gartshore was displayed all weekend where friends could write a special message in his memory. The picture was presented to the Baer Brake Systems team at the event and will be on display at their headquarters in Arizona.
Present in this photograph are the Baer Brake Systems' team, the Centerforce team, Doug Dwyer of Power TV Media, Mike Santa Cruz of NMRA/NMCA, and SEMA board members, John Hotchkis and Steve Wolcott.
