It's a new show on Discovery Channel about street racing. It's really good. :D

Good is an understatement. It is high energy and showcases guys who are devoted drag racers who race on the streets....but I suspect that they really are racing in industrial parks after hours and at airport runways after the runways have been shut down. They are very competitive and are mechanical geniuses in wrenching out volumes of horsepower in their cars. Flip was an interesting guy who mostly used parts discarded by other racers to build his car into an awesome machine that made awesome power. He seemed happy, connected to his group, and successful in his chosen sport. There had to be some depression issues that got the best of him. By the way, his exhaust pipes exited out of his front fenders of his El Camino instead of under the car....the flames blowing out during his runs were absolutely amazing. RIP Flip.

Everything I've found on it suggests that he committed suicide.

Yeah. I'm seeing that too. I went on the Discovery Channel and in the comments about the show, someone who claims to live across the street from him said that he shot himself.

Too bad. I feel aweful for his kids.

I know.

I didn't see someone who was wanting to die. I believed he wanted to continue enjoying life to the full. RIP Flip and God bless. X

The family is not wanting the cause of his death released as of yet. Everything else is rumor and speculation.

He's gone - what is to be gained by keeping it "secret"?

The Texas vs OK race was definitely staged, but it was still pretty awesome. I'll miss Flip.
