    J Gleason was a great guy and was a fun to be around. We only spent a few times together, mostly through American Turbo Pack. He will be missed by many and me for sure !!

    Dear Jay & Family
    So many times in the last 40+ years – yep you have to remember you started Racing Flat Track in the 70’s I have wondered how you were I can almost tell you the last time we were at Ascot bench racing. Your Dad had gone into the Turbo business and you were doing a lot of work for Cycle World – it seems odd to read of your passing. I moved from So Cal to Kansas City in 1980 and stay away from Motorcycles until 2009 – since then Many a ship
    Has sailed as they say but you my friend will always Rate in my life as one for the books……you will be missed God Bless You Jay!

    I remember him setting a new record every pass down the track on a Honda CBX when it was 1st released. Every pass was better than the last. Sorry to hear he is gone.
