Scott Kalitta

The Tattler and Ypsilanti lost a very good friend last week when NHRA Funny Car driver Scott Kalitta was killed during a qualifying run in New Jersey. Scott and the entire Kalitta family are a business powerhouse and avid boosters for Ypsilanti.

It was always great to watch the Kalitta’s on TV or in the news and proudly say their team was from Ypsilanti. Ypsilanti’s Fischer Honda has been a long time sponsor of the Kaiitta’s racing family so we have two strong connections to top flight racing right here in our favorite town.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Connie, Kathy, Corey, Colin, and the entire Kalitta family. We are going to miss you buddy.
