To the Sprint Car Racing Community;

On behalf of Mark Wilson's wife Marcia, and his son Tyler, the Bob Trostle family, Larry Weeks and all of Mark's extended, racing family, we want to express our sincerest "Thanks" for the thoughts, prayers, phone calls and cards from all the fans and participants in these difficult days following his untimely death. We also want to acknowledge the above-and-beyond-the-call efforts of the superb Knoxville Raceway Safety and Ambulance crew, the caring staff at Knoxville Community Hospital, and all the help and support given us by the Knoxville Raceway officials.

If you haven't been informed, there will be a visitation at the Hamilton Funeral Home on Lyon Street in Des Moines Iowa from 6 to 8 pm on Tuesday, April, 17, 2001. The funeral will also be held at Hamilton's on Wednesday, April 18, 2001 at 1:00 pm. Take the East 6th Ave. exit from Interstate 235. Hamilton's is on the Southeast corner of East 6th Ave. and Lyon St., about two blocks south of I-235.

Mark had no life insurance of his own. Bob Trostle and Larry Weeks are planning to meet with bankers today, April 17, to discuss a trust fund that will hopefully benefit both the long term needs of Tyler and pressing, short term needs of Marcia. Details and addresses will be made available as soon as we know.

Personally, I would like to thank everyone for having refrained from rumor and speculation. This is difficult enough without having to deal with those problems.

Thank you all again,

Larry Weeks
