I found out a buddy of mine passed away this morning in a car accident. He was a cool and good person, very easy to get along with. His passion was definitely with driving, he had a few Miatas and was insanely quick around Calaveras road. I remember getting a couple rides from him last summer, and the level he was at on that road was almost unmatched. While skillful, the rate and intensity of his driving eventually caught up. He went off the shoulder on Page Mill and his life was ended far too soon. Rest in Peace Darryl, you will be missed.
