Oh man, sorry to hear this news. I'm glad I got to meet Larry awhile back and was happy to see him make a comeback in the coupes. My thoughts and prayers are with the McLaughlins during this time. Just know that #38 is now running with some great racing legends up there! R.I.P. Larry McLaughlin

Prayers and condolences go out to all of Larry's family and friends.

I was lucky enough to get to design Larry's hero card just a month ago or so.

Well Dad passed a little after 3am Monday morning, Quietly.
One thing that Dad was excited about was the doctor giving him the high sign to get back into the car. Winning the first main event of the season and getting quick time at BCS just before his B-Day in June. And going to Pueblo to run the car. They would not let him race, but let him run the first session of hot laps. Gary with a 12.47 quick time and Dad ran a respectable 12.92 with used tires and an "Old Car" and not having run the track since it had been redone. Dad was satisfied he had proved he could still get it done.

Anyway, enough of the memories. Services will be at FT Logan Cemetary on Fri Oct 7th at 1:30pm stage area "B". There will be a get together at Fatfenders Grill -2490 w Hampden- from 3pm till 7pm
for info call 303-536-4016

To my,,,,,,Friend, my Hero and my Dad I LOVE YOU and that im thankful for all the great times together.

RIP.

Greg

Alice, Greg, Debbie and the rest of the Mac family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all and I know what you went through. Larry fought the tough battle and I hope he is now pain free.
