STATEMENT FROM DON SCHUMACHER RACING REGARDING ERIC MEDLEN
All of us at Don Schumacher Racing are deeply saddened by the passing of Eric Medlen. Eric was a rival on 23 Sunday afternoons at NHRA races but a great friend to all of us at DSR. We shared many laughs and stories along the way with Eric, his dad John and his teammates. His smile was easy and genuine. He knew he was a lucky guy to drive one of the four John Force Mustang Funny Cars and to have his dad as his crew chief. He respected his responsibilities as a young ambassador for John Force Racing, his sponsors and for NHRA POWERade Drag Racing. Our hearts go out to the Medlen Family, the John Force Racing organization and everyone who knew and loved Eric Medlen.
