Gene Burkland Passes

The Burklands are one of land speed racing’s most congenial and fastest families. Gene has long been known for his tremendous welding and fabrication abilities as well as his countless hours of R&D on high speed tires. Gene excelled at design, aerodymanics and fabrication. What Gene built, was built very well, something upon which you could rely. Indeed, rest your life upon.

You can read Gene's obituary in the Great Falls Tribune here.

A gentle, sincere man, with a ready handshake and smile who loved his wife, his kids, his sport.
