Was always a Big Fan of Mike Brooks back when he ran his "Brooks Trucking" 360 Sprintcar at Knoxville. His racing history goes a lot deeper that that but he was the one I always had my eye on back in the day.. RIP Champ...

One of my heros when I was a kid, and driver of one of the most beautiful cars to race at Knoxville. A few years ago I was pleasantly surpised when I discovered that he was serving on the fairboard. A night berfore the races this guy that I thought looked like Mike brook, was scanning tickets and I looked up and asked "Are you Mike Brooks" And he said yes with a smile. I probably looked like some star struck kid with a blank look on my face. 

Prayers to the family and friends. 

Keep It Real

Sincere condolences to his family and friends. Mike was a heck of a competitor and piloted one of the most beautiful sprint cars to ever scratch dirt at K'ville.

I have a couple of really fond memories of him at Dingus's after the races.
