John Barnes, Panther Racing Managing Partner/CEO:
“Scott Roembke was a dear friend of mine and was a true leader in our profession. He was one of the few people in our sport that I sought out for advice, and I always trusted his word. Scott was a guy that never wanted to take any credit, but never hesitated to take charge. God has blessed all of us in this profession with the opportunity to be a small part of his life.
