RIP Gus - I really enjoyed watching the black Banas No. 69 on the local tracks. He was quite the racer. In fact it ran in the family his brother **** was an outstanding driver destined for the big time until his death at Trenton.

Thoughts and prayers to the Linder family. Gus made us proud to be western PA sprint car fans at home and when we went out east.

Sorry to hear this. When I was younger, I wasn't a big fan (He beat my local favorites too often). When I got older, I got to understand how hard it was to win one of these races, and grew to appreciate him. R.I.P. Gus.
