With a heavy heart I received news that long time friend Shawn Gann passed away last night.

For many of you that may know or may not know I spent many years working and racing with the Gann family. Shawn was like my brother and Blake (Shawn’s father) was like a dad to me. I virtually lived with them during the racing seasons on the Pro Stock Bike Tours.

I met Shawn when he was 12 years old and became his crew chief as he began racing. Years have gone by but the depth and love of our relationship like a family always continued.

I just got off the phone with Blake and this is a very sad time. God bless the Gann family. This one really stings…love you and God loves you Shawn Gann. Rest In Peace.

God Speed Shawn…..Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire Gann Family.

  1. Shawn suffered serious head injuries in a motorcycle testing accident back in December 2018. He wasn’t wearing a helmet and ended up in the ICU on life support. No doubt he suffered brain injuries that probably led to deep depression and his eventual suicide. May he rest in peace.
