    I had the pleasure of seeing Dave drive Bigfoot at a Monster Nationals show in Durham, NH in 2005. It had been several years since I had seen Bigfoot in person and Dave made me remember why I was a Bigfoot fan when I was younger.

    Best of wishes to Dave and his family during this difficult time.

    I was deeply saddened to recieve this news earlier today. I had the pleasure of working alongside Dave at many event over the past several years. I won't soon forget the hospitality he showed me at the first event I ever ran into him at, and the kindness that he exuded every time after that.

    Although there are others who knew him better than I, I feel a deep sense of loss; a shadow has truly crossed my heard. Dave has always been a good friend, always there to lend a helping hand, and always there to make sure there wasn't anything he could do to help.

    I don't know what brought this situation upon Dave and his family, nor is it my or any of our business. But I feel a pang of guilt for not being able to do something.

    Best wishes Dave.

    "Harkey" was family and this one hit my entire family really hard, we made quite a few calls this morning when we found out and it was really hard to do so... so lets remember the good times and the joy he brought all of us during the short time he was here - he will be missed

    We love you "Dad" and we'll miss you deeply - In loving memory of David Harkey - 1959-2008

    Wow, I'm shocked to hear that! I was fortunate enough to see his last race in Merced, CA last year. I hope that he pulls through, my prayers go out to his family and friends.

    Although I don't believe I had the pleasure of seeing him race (may have- need to look back), I know he has left a lasting impact on this sport by driving a big blue Ford.

    May Dave Harkey rest in peace.

    Lyrics by Tim McGraw, thought this was fitting:
    Please Remember Me

    When all our tears have reached the sea
    Part of you will live in me
    Way down deep inside my heart
    The days keep coming without fail
    A new wind is gonna find your sail
    Thats where your journey starts

    Youll find better love
    Strong as it ever was
    Deep as the river runs
    Warm as the morning sun
    Please remember me

    Just like the waves down by the shore
    Were gonna keep on coming back for more
    cause we dont ever wanna stop
    Out in this brave new world you seek
    Oh the valleys and the peaks
    And I can see you on the top

    Youll find better love
    Strong as it ever was
    Deep as the river runs
    Warm as the morning sun
    Please remember me

    Remember me when youre out walkin
    When the snow falls high outside your door
    Late at night when youre not sleepin
    And moonlight falls across your floor
    When I cant hurt you anymore

    Youll find better love
    Strong as it ever was
    Deep as the river runs
    Warm as the morning sun
    Please remember me
    Please remember me
