Dad you were not only my much adored farther, you were my idol and hero, A man who possessed great strength and drive and would help anyone who needed it, you were the most influential man in my life, and one who supported me no matter the choices and mistakes I made.
I will miss you each and every day Dad, everyone knew I was your Princess and the love and support you showed me was clear for everyone to see.
One day we will be reunited and be eternally together for ever, until the Dad I will continue to work for the sport that we loved so much, Love You Dad. xxxx

Ivan farther of ace sprintcar driver Chase Kapenka, passed away as the result of a heart attack he suffered while working in a remote area of the Northern Territory in august of 2006.
Ivans dedication to Chase's racing was unrivaled, His whole life revolved around providing the ground works for Chase to go racing, From a small wrecking yard in Darwin Honnest Ive funded Chase's racing through junior sedans, street sedans and black track racing at Hidden Valley.
In 2000 2001 Chase as a sixteen year old took out the Northern Territory Street Sedan Championship,
In January of 2001 Collie Speedway hosted the Australian Street Sedan title and I organized to have the Kapenko family say with us and provided a trailer and the race shop to operate from over there stay. This was a time that I got to Know Ivan very well.
After the running of the title with no real result for the NT team they headed home, But we had already put plans in place to fly Chase down in March of 2001 to contest the Modified Sedan West Australian Championship at the Augusta Margaret River Speedway in my Sigma.
As time marched on Chase had caught the eye of the Ludlow family, and Chase and Ivan would become regulars in the Late Model Sedan racing at the Perth Motoplex.
