Scott Geoffrion Passes Away
Scott Geoffrion, a two-time former Pro Stock world championship runner-up and nine-time national event winner, died May 8 of an apparent heart attack in Southern California. He was 40.
Geoffrion was hospitalized Sunday night for observation with breathing problems and a fever stemming from ulcers in his esophagus and was stricken the next day.
Geoffrion, who drove for Warren Johnson from 1987 through 1991 before joining David Hutchensâ€™ star-crossed Wayne County Speed Shop/Dodge Boys team with Darrell Alderman, reached the final round 28 times in a career that spanned more than 200 races from 1987 through 2004. He didn't score his first victory until his 10th final round, in Memphis in 1993, where he defeated Pro Stock legend Bob Glidden. His most recent win was in 1997 in Topeka.
