On Friday March 10th at 10:00 a.m., your presence is requested at Shasta Speedway as Gary will take his last lap around the track that he made famous.  Everyone is encouraged to dress in racing apparel and observe as Gary will solidify history by taking his final and historical checkered flag.  The Patriot Guard Riders will escort a procession from Shasta Speedway to the Veterans Cemetery in Igo, California where a private ceremony for the Cressey family and close friends will lovingly present Gary to his final resting place.  Celebrate Life….Celebrate Gary Cressey who is not only an icon but a man that loved his family, friends, his dog Tecate and the community where he was highly regarded as a Pillar of the Empire.  Please join us at Shasta Speedway for this memorable event.
