Reginald "tha undertaker" Bass
You make a LIVING by what you GET, but you make a LIFE by what you GIVE!
Reginald Bass, AKA "tha undertaker" learned at an early age that there are two distinct types influence, negative and positive, growing up in Houston's Northside communities of Kashmere Gardens and 5th Ward, Reginald has first hand knowledge on how difficult it can be for a inner city youth to consistently choose the positive over the negative, and that' s why he choose to be the "Positive"
His ability to triumph over these hurdles and obtain the life he has today he attributes to the "The Grace of God" and the strong women in his life, his mother, grandmother and positive influences of men like Coach Hollis Felder.
Reginald is blessed and highly favored, married to his wife of 19 years, Paula Riggins Bass.
He's the father of three adult children and three grandchildren.
Racing is in Reginald 's genes.. As the 3rd generation drag racer his second home was the track. His earliest memory is at the age of seven. Having a desire to fast track his life, he learned he could release a lot of negative energy in a positive way on the track. The art of "drag racing" has proven to be more than a hobby. As the founder of Elite 8 Racing Team, he's learned the value of leading through serving others.
