IHRA Multi-Time World Champ John Furr Passes

Wednesday, 10 August 2016

It is with extreme sadness we relay the news of the passing of IHRA World Champion John Furr.  John passed from this earth around 12 noon Tuesday due to a stroke.  Please pray for the family during this time of intense shock and sorrow.  His brother Steve, also a multi-time IHRA World Champion, was in California on business when he received the news.

"When I started chasing points in the IHRA Hot Rod category in 2002, John was still the benchmark of the category and certainly someone I both admired and never wanted to race first round" said IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco.  "John was one of the competitors who embodied everything that made IHRA sportsman racing great." 

John won 3 world championships in Hot Rod (1992, 1993 & 1996) John finished 2nd in the World points in 2007 before turning his focus from racing to owning an automotive repair business.
