On May 10th, we lost a loyal friend, father, brother, and honorable son, Phillip "Pip" Nikolenko.
He was close to several of us in the Virginia automotive scene.
"A controversial individual to say the least", he was a 'bigger than life' person that left an impression on everyone he met.
We will always remember the influence he has had on us and will continue to be motivated by him and his family/team at Adrenaline Autoworks to make our fast cars faster, our big trucks bigger, and make damn sure we have a blast while we do it just as he did.
Those of you that knew him well, know that he would bend over backwards to help you but was never afraid to tell you how it really was.
As per Phil's family request, he is to be taken back home to Russia for a proper burial. As you can imagine, financing such a unexpected tragedy to transport him home and lay him to rest are costly.
We ask that in lieu of flowers and gifts, a donation be made to help send Phil home where his family can lay him to rest. Any extra proceeds will go to his loving, three-year-old daughter - Sophia Nikolenko, to a trust fund for her education.
Anybody who can't donate online can make a donation in person at his shop.
Thank you, sincerely from Phil's family, friends and [Adrenaline] team.
