MSD is saddened to learn about the untimely death of sport compact pioneer Shaun Carlson. Carlson had been diagnosed with Brugada Syndrome, a genetic disease characterized by an abnormality in the heart’s electrical system. Shaun was the talented owner of NuFormz Racing in Ontario, Calif., and a former Team Mopar NHRA Pro Stock driver for Don Schumacher Racing. Carlson was named one of the Top Ten Innovators of all time in the sport compact world and was the first Front Wheel Drive builder to run in the 9’s and in the 8’s as well as building the first sport compact drag car with a tube chassis. There are no details on a memorial service at this time.
MSD sends our condolences to his family.
