It pains me to write this post, but Russell Cady, 33, left the world in a terrible car accident on 8/31/2013.

Some of you may have known Russ through his love of cars- some of you may have known him as that guy who leaked the 2015 IRS Mustang pictures. Everyone who knew Russ knew he had a heart the size of his home state Texas and knew that he loved cars with everything he had. I credit my multiple trips (and press passes) to the Texas Mile to Russ, along with a couple crazy nights in Las Vegas.

Here is to you, Russ.
