Weedsport, NYJanuary 25, 2010 – From Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast PR Director

World Racing Group officials and the entire DIRTcar Racing Northeast staff extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of long-time race reporter Don Post, 59, who passed away from congestive heart failure on Sunday afternoon, January 24.

“Don has been writing about the Central New York circuit since DIRTcar Racing started out,” noted Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast Public Relations Director. “He was the first to cover the Mr. DIRTcar Sportsman champ trail on a regular basis and was a long-time contributor to Gater Racing Photo News and DIRT Trackin’ Magazine in its infancy. If there was a race to go to, Don was one of the first to get on the phone and find a way to get there.”

Calling hours for Post will be from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, January 28 at the R.A. Patrick, Inc. Funeral Home, 26 West Main Street in Clifton Springs, New York 14432. The funeral will be 11 a.m. Friday also at Patrick’s Funeral Home (315/462-2221).
