The Finish Line
IKE HAMMA DIES August 25
by Jok Nicholson
Ike passed away Saturday, August 25, 2001 after battling
cancer for the past couple years. He was the original
inventor of the delay box and the consummate "thinker"
for the sport of bracket racing and the "super classes."
His Digital Delay brand delay boxes and timers are in
thousands of drag cars around the country. Like the delay
boxes or hate them, you have to admire the effect his
inventions had on our sport.
He will be remembered as great guy who raced you hard
and when it was over (or even during a race) he would
be the first guy to come over and help rewire your car
to fix the problems.
