Just In From George' Brazee's daughter...." My Dad passed away last night peacefully with much of his family by his side. He was in a hospice & declined quite quickly and was struggling in his last days. . I know he cherished all of his family and friendships and especially enjoyed sharing history here on Facebook with his old racing buddies and car enthusiast. We will miss him dearly."

The Little guy with the fast cars. George partnered up with "ziggy' Sabis to build one of Dover's all time favorites...'THE LITTLE GIANT" crosley altered. He sold it to Fred Harrison ,who contined on with it . The car was a crowd pleaser atDover,Lebanon & Ct.Dragway, and many east coast tracks. George then went on to field a super fast junior fueler.Most notably blowing the doors off ChaCha Muldowney at Dover,so much that she never returned. After Dover closed and up until a few years ago,he was seen at many car shows & cruise nights with his street rod. Surely a sad day for Dover Guys that knew him well. Great Guy ...great cars ....heres some captured memories
