Mike McSpadden, or 'Muley' as he was known to his many friends on SoCaps and elsewhere passed away yesterday from a heart attack.
Mike was one of the good guys - always wearing a smile, and he'd do anything in the world for you. We're all gonna miss you, Mike.

This is truly sad! Mike was a personal friend of mine and I am stunned by this. I just spoke with him a few days ago.

Speaking of Barona, here's Mike and Will going down the track there.

This makes me so sad. Far too young. RIP, Muley.
Folks call me Bill. Why, yes, it is a 6 liter. Your jealousy is showing.

I wish I could have met the man. I'm sure I would have next year at some race or another.
I know a few of you guys were friends with him, so you have my condolences, as does the family he left behind.

My condolences to Mikes Family. He was as some have said, one of the good ones. I never met him, but he was a fixture over on Forddieselpower as one of our Technical Specialists. He helped a lot of people with what he knew about these engines and trucks. RIP Mike. U will be missed!
