Cycledrag.com is saddened to learn of the passing of announcer Lynn Nickerson.

Nickerson passed away on the morning of Friday May 20th, 2011 after a long bout with cancer.

Nickerson, of Fort Worth, Texas, was best known in the drag bike world for his time announcing on the AMA/Prostar circuit in the late 90s and early 2000s.  Nickerson also announced several four-wheel drag races motocross events.

“Everyday I wake up is a bonus to me.  To go to the races and be with my racing family is like icing on a German chocolate cake,” Nickerson wrote as a quote on his Facebook profile.

Godspeed Lynn.

Editors note – I called my very first race, the 2001 AMA/Prostar World Finals, with Lynn Nickerson.  He had an incredible voice  and was very knowledgeable.  He loved to announce.  It was his passion.  He will be missed. – Jack Korpela

    Knew Lynn since he was 14. He was one of our Explorer scouts, hung around my then-boyfriend, now husband for hours & days. We rode and raced bikes, I fed him Pink Panther flakes and sandwiches by the buckets and let him…and many other kids go on dates. Pat put a microphone in his hands at our scout races..and the rest is history. From the 14 year old who did not want dust or dirt on his bike, the unique laugh, to the wondeful man he became….Lynn will always be remembered and loved.
    Lynn, say hello to your wonderful mom.
