    Just received the sad news of the passing of DAVID SARSYCKI. David had fought a nearly six month battle, being in and out of the hospitals multiple times.
    He and his duel engine karts were a very important part of the Mid America Road Race Series and he will be sorely missed. David was one of our beloved characters and he will be the topic of many conversations for years to come.
    He leaves a wonderful, loving daughter, Amber Sarsycki Simmons. You can view many pictures of David on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/amber.simmons1?ref=eyJzaWQiOiIwLjczMDAzOTM5MjAxOTYxMzUiLCJxcyI6IkpUVkNKVEl5UVcxaVpYSWxNakJUWVhKemVXTnJhU1V5TUZOcGJXMXZibk1sTWpJbE5VUSIsImd2IjoiOTRhZDBhNTUxNmQ3YThkN2E4YWVmYjJmODNhYWYyZThlNDI0YjI1NiJ9

    This is one that will be missed dearly!!!!!! Rest in peace David!!!

    As for welding, he was one of the tops!!! He welded things no one else wanted to even attempt.

    He was one of those who would experiment and try anything. I remember just a couple of years ago he brought a 4 engine (controls), 2 on each side on a laydown kart to Afton to test for his trip to the salt flats he had plans for. Only issue was that he found out before making the trip that it was not what the salt flats deemed as a legal entry to try and set a land speed record.

    THE MAN

    After I made the original post I remembered something about David I wanted to share. I will never forget when he brought his girlfriend, who happened to be a stripper, to Garnett and on Saturday night, she did! Jamie McMurray was just barely a teen at the time and they told him he couldn’t stay for the show. He told them “My Dad is an IKF Director, and if you don’t let me watch, there will be trouble!” They let him stay.
    And of course, his last “motorhome” had a pole ready for the next stripper.

    Bummer to hear this. David was one of those guys that’s always there, and he would always come by and say hi. RIP David.

    So very sorry to hear the news.  (I know I’m getting old when I see the sport losing my contemporaries.) David and I go way back.

    I’m so glad I had the chance to visit with him at Topeka last fall.  Soon after that race I received an email from Richard Peck (Hornet Karts) saying David had been hospitalized in very serious condition.  However, in November he told me David was doing better.

    RIP my good friend.  Our sport has lost yet another great supporter and someone who truly understood and lived in the spirit of the karting’s original purpose.

    David was so much fun to race with through all the years. He had the best equipped tool box with enough stuff to fix any thing. I have used his tools many a time too help fix some ones Kart haulers. R.I.P. Brother. We all miss You.
