  1. To the family of Mike,
    After I heard of Michael’s death, I reflected back on our racing memories. Richard (my late husband) really enjoyed those times spent with the Martin racing family & gave him something to look forward to with his health. After Richard’s death, Mike became a 2nd father to our children and our daughter had a tattoo done of the race car. Mike meant the world to Sara & Brian, but work & distance kept them from personal visits. I know Mike & Elton knew how much their friendship meant to Richard and I both.
    At this time in celebration of Mike’s life, know this:
    No matter how smooth or rough this day
    God is with you every step of the way.
    My thoughts of happy times are my memories of the racing era & friendships made. As the minister said at Richard’s funeral, he knows there’s a race track on every corner. I’m sure they’ll all meet there at some point. God be with each of you as you all think of Mike & remember him. Love & sympathy, Ina Smith

  2. Mike always acted to be a big tough person but underneath that his soul was one of a very loving and caring individual he would be there in a time of need and be someone who could be relied on. The world truly lost a very special and caring man, heaven truly gained another guardian angel.
