Thinking of Tim

Dave Monyhan at PRI with Tim and Beth Hyatt

Sad news in our racing family as Tim Hyatt has passed away. I was lucky enough to know Tim for over 25 years. There was no one I knew that was any more giving than Tim Hyatt. Yes, Tim was the go to guy at every NHRA race. To have Tim grind your floaters, clutches, and flywheels you know you had the best.. I know it was Tim’s skills that put a lot of teams in the #1 qualifying position as well as winners circle due to his talents at grinding. But to me Tim was more than just a guy at the track, he was my friend, very sincere, always had a smile on is face. Tim was actually interested in how you were and what you were up to. I know my exposure to everything drag racing would not have been the same with out Tim Hyatt. My sincere condolences to Beth and the rest of the Tim’s extended family. I know God must have needed a clutch guy and he got the best in the world. I will miss you Timmers!
