Medlen succumbed to complications from a closed head injury four days after his drag racing Funny Car crashed during routine testing at Gainesville (Fla.) Raceway.
A six-time winner on the NHRA drag racing tour, Medlen maintained his residence in Brownsburg near the site of the midwest shop facility that housed his race car and those of John Force Racing teammates John Force, Ashley Force and Robert Hight.
According to JFR sources, flowers can be arranged through Queen Anne’s Lace in Brownsburg. The phone number is 317-858-8170.
Medlen, one of the most popular young drivers in the NHRA POWERade Series, is survived by his father, John; his mother, Mary “Mimi” Medlen; his stepmother, Martha Medlen; and a sister, Eryn Gonzales.
