Would really love to see the old gas monkey tho where you built the cars rather than all this other stuff that Discovery loves to show I appreciate its a buisness but just hoping you guys don’t end up like occ , love seeing you guys do stuff others say you can’t do just wish there were garages like you here in Scotland UK

  9. Good luck to all the assorted Monkeys this weekend.
    We will be trying to watch as much of it as we can, with our limited coverage up here in Canada.
    Get you some of that!

  10. Thank you for racing at Sebring. We enjoyed watching the viper race and we picked up some cool Gas Monkey gear from the tent.

  11. Sucked to see laughlin shake hard and go out first round. Good showing by you guys top half of the ladder here in Vegas. Keep Up the Good Work. Still in the Top 10 for Points..

  12. I met Alex Laughlin here in Baytown this weekend(April 29th-March 1St)for the Mello Yello NHRA Spring Nationals. Richard chose a very respectable man to represent G.M. and the beating heart of the NHRA. Thank you Richard. I spoke with Alex about my ill wife as he waited near the line for his next run and for that moment he was no longer at his car waiting to race,but with me and my distress. The positive energy he passed to me latter sparked a fire in my wife’s eyes as I passed on the words he gave to me. I salute you Richard.

    • He’s a great guy, isn’t he? He and his whole family/team are very respectful, great people. Glad you got to meet him! Hope your wife is doing OK!

  13. Good morning Gas monkey crew, my son and I were in Epping on Monday and we got to meet Alex, my son Race was checking out the car and was looking around for Alex, he saw him packing his shoots and was waiting for him to finish when Alex called him to the back of the car to meet him, my son was really jacked up to go back to meet him and get a auto and pic. great representative for your company and the sport. Race’s question was ” Do you know Richard ” Alex got a kick out of that one and told him that he was with you a couple weeks ago. My son’s response to that was COOL!!!!!!! .
    We went back after he raced Anderson to let him know what a great job he did, I think if the tree didn’t get him he would of had something for him. anyway sorry for the book just wanted to let you know what a great guy we thought he was. even after being eliminated he still had a great attitude and smile on his face. Cant wait to see you guys in the winners circle.
