In Memory of Don Crabtree "Father Time"
NEDRA NEWS (December 15, 2012) NEDRA has lost one of it's pioneers. Don was an inspiration for us all. In 2008, he stepped up to the plate to take the reigns as NEDRA President when the organization was going through some rough times and pulled us through with his grace and wisdom. He was instrumental in helping to form our rules and classes.
But most of all, he loved to build fast electric vehicles of all kinds. Don was an early pioneer in electric drag boat racing. He's also famous for his electric drag bike, "Frakendragon," pictured above. And his most recent project, the green narrowed hot rod that he's been working on the past few years which he brought to the Emerald Joules Event at Pacific Raceway this past August.
Don's presence will surely be missed. Our thoughts are with his son, Tom True and family at this time.
