"Lacey" is a very dedicated Charter Member of Bracket
Masters. He drives a 1967 Plymouth GTX. The car has
undergone extensive upgrading and has been given a new
paint job. Lacey has been racing since 1968. Lacey is a "Jack of All
Trades" and will help anyone who asks, or needs help.
His reasons for belonging to the club are to learn more
about drag racing, share his skills with other racers, travel to other tracks and to experience the feeling of
brotherhood in the club.
Lacey's sales efforts help the club finance
many of the projects of the team. He has been the top seller
in every promotion the club has sponsored. Other than racing, he has
three hobbies, watching football, baseball and basketball.
Lacey believes in putting God as the center of his
life. It's his faith, that has allowed him to accomplish all his
goals in life. He's a man of high standards, he is trustworthy, dependable, and
he is a role model to the ones just entering the racing
field. His respect for others is the reason for his highly respected
Lacey would like to have Bracket Masters get more involved
with youth. He would like the club to provide an alternative to our
youth to keep them out of the streets and away from drugs. Lacey believes hard work, dedication and
education are the keys to helping our kids becoming good citizens. If anyone in the club knows
about hard work and dedication, it is Lacey. Lacey is one of the hardest
workers in the club, no matter what the job.

Lacey Is At Rest
Wonderful words were spoken, songs of praise were sung and everything turned out very nice. Befitting for a man that has lived such a peaceful and wonderful life. Bro. Johnny Tate spoke on behalf of Bracket Masters Racing Team and did a wonderful job. Lacey was a Charter Members of Bracket Masters Racing Team, Inc.
It would be fitting to say that as a racer, Lacey loved his 1957 Plymouth GTX, with a 440 Mopar engine, he named it, "The Tank". Every year he would bring it out to the track and run in the annual Fathers Day race and that was all the racing he needed each year. It should be noted that in his last race, July of 2016, Lacey won two rounds and he was so happy. Lacey was on his game and the car ran flawlessly. That made all of the team very happy!
There has never been a more caring teammate than Lacey. He would help anyone and it made helping him a pleasure. He would call team members just to say hello and check on your family. We will miss the smile and loving nature of Lacey.
Team members and close friends served as pallbearers, active and honorary, during the service and internment.
