Rickey Gadson’s Drag Racing School – The Virginia Motorsports Experience

As you may have noticed during track, motorcycle club and open house events as well as industry related events, Mr. Rickey Gadson is the epitome of a dedicated family man, with his wife, kids, and mom frequently traveling alongside with him. So, needless to say Rickey is a family comes first kind of guy.

During his Rickey Gadson Drag Racing School session at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg, Virginia, Rickey was dutifully balancing his commitments to his students with the reality of his mother’s fight with cancer. Remaining dedicated to his fans and students, Rickey showed up ready to do what he does, teach, inspire, and share his years of experience as a 10-time drag racing champion.

Unfortunately, during this particular session he received word of his moms quickly deteriorating condition. Without hesitation he bolted back north to Philadelphia to be by her side, where he lovingly stayed until angels arrived to peacefully ride with her to her new heavenly home.

With much respect and support to the Gadson family during this time of loss and remembrance to the spirited and joyful personality of Vicky Gadson.

Thanks to Rickey and Kiana Gadson as well as Virginia Motorsports Park for allowing Throttle Life to cover this nationally recognized drag racing school.
