If Scott can snap out of this the way he can snap out of the starting gate, all will be fine.
The Cote's have you in our prayers. Get well soon!

I'm really jogging my memory here about Billy, was he prone to crashing alot & was he the kid always riding with Tyler?

Sorry for your families loss Ashley. Tylers memory is still fresh with me as I had some great races against him.

Take care,
Bruce Ritter

I remeber Billy and Tyler both from back in the day at the boat harbor track. They were both fast racers and great jumpers and all around good guys.

Bruce- It might have been or your thinking of Wesley Penrod my other cousin him and Ty were about the same age I believe But Billy is only 3 or 4 years older than Tyler but they were together all the time.Thanks for everyone who remembers my cousins. But least Billy wont suffer from his addictions anymore. Were not sure when the funeral is yet but as soon as I know I will post the information.

I talked to Dallas this morning for an update. Since we last talked it's been up & down for Scott. He's still in I.C.U. at IHC in Murray.
I'll keep you updated as news comes in, in the meantime say a prayer or send postive thoughts to Scott & his family.

Scott Taul, Taylor, the Edwards, and the rest of the Taul's have been in our prayers and thoughts at home. Seems like yesterday we were all in Vegas enjoyIng the races this past summer. Can't believe this happened. I'm truly sorry for the loss and may Scott rest in peace. Everyone keep Scott and his family in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season.
