What Happened to PSSR?

I'm behind the curve as always... Does anyone know what happened to PSSR? I'm saddened to see that their website is down and they are not on any track schedule that I can find. Talk about a class act that will sorely be missed if they closed their doors for good.

It's been a couple years now that they got out of the track day business. From what I gathered from Tom Young, it was just "that time". They had been running track days since what the late 90's or early 2000's? I think he just wanted to basically retire and have more time to enjoy his life at home. You'll see him at an event here and there, as he was still selling tires at "track time" track days last year. I was a PSSR follower since my first time on the track in 2013 and I miss all of the good times with Tom and those guys. And you are right, they were a class act for sure!

Thanks. Completely understand why, but will certainly miss that group. I really enjoyed the way they ran things.

PSSR was ran by some big name OG OMRRA racers. I will miss that group something fierce! Especially Janice R.I.P.

She was a very sweet lady and always there. Still remember the day I crashed second or third session in and she sought me out in the pits afterward. Asked me if I was alright and gave me the money back for the track sessions I'll miss for the day to get myself to the hospital. Still nearly speechless about that one.

Yes, PSSR was a great group! Tom, Al, Janice, the Pinkstaffs, Ollie J, et al,
They did great things for our sport. Legends!

MotoCT is correct. Tom and Al decided to retire two years ago and close down PSSR. They had their last session at PIR August 2016. Tom sold off the mobile tire changing equipment this summer. They were just ready to get out and slow down a bit. It's a hell of a lot of work keeping a group like PSSR running and I'm grateful to them for all they did for us. I still see Tom regularly and Al occasionally when he's in town for events. Tom's really happy with the move and is doing well and Al is spending more time in Baja.

It was heartbreaking to lose Janice, what a sweet person she was. I hope Seemo is doing OK.

I sure miss riding with the PSSR crew, Tom and Al, Mike Grey, Kevin Taylor, Scott Roper, Doug and Star, Naomi and Brad and the Pinkstaffs and the rest of the crew....PSSR was a class act with great people. I always felt safe at speed with everyone of them.
