Default OSO power needed

I copied this post by 46Tomcat from the racers forum. Justin Hurttgam a young member of the Reliable racing team was badly hurt in a freak accident at the Corpus Christi race. He is still in a coma after 22 days!!! Please take a moment out of your day and send his parents a card or a note to let them know their son is in your prayers. We are a large group and an offshore family, please help us show the Hurttgam family that we are pulling for Justin. Please post on the thread so we can keep it up front for a while.



As the OSS show pulled out of Corpus Christi, unfortunately we left one of our brightest stars behind. Justin Hurttgam, from the Reliable Carriers team, was critically injured in an accident that occurred while setting up for the show. Justin was taken to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital. His parents Gail and Eric have been at his side for the last 22 days. Currently, Justin is in a coma, but is sometimes able to react to what he hears with small movements. He is still in critical condition, but we are hoping that soon he will be in stable enough condition to be airlifted closer to his home in Orlando. If you would like to express your concern and support for Justin and the Hurttgam family, you can send mail to the following address:

Attn: Eric & Gail Hurttgam (No room # necessary)
Holiday Inn Emerald Beach
1102 . S. Shoreline Blvd.
Corpus Christi 78401

Eric and Gail would like to thank you for all of your prayers and support. They are working. Please keep them coming

you can see Justin's picture on the thread in the racers forum, he is so young probably just about 20 it tears at your heart. Living not far from Reliable headquarters, I feel like they are my hometown team so I am hoping that our group can mail some words of encouragement their way
