It was shocking news to wake up to back in March.  The details were still coming out that morning about a crazy night in Missoula and Evaro that claimed the life of Shelley Hays and left Casey Blanchard, his mother Julie Blanchard, and Trooper Wade Palmer hospitalized.  Julie Blanchard would eventually pass away in June as a result of the injuries she suffered.

We love getting updates with any bit of good news from that terrible day and that is exactly what we have this week.  

Casey Blanchard has faced a long road to recovery after being shot eight times and suffering injuries that left him in a wheelchair.  But the awesome news is US Diesel Parts posted a picture to their Facebook page yesterday showing Casey has returned to work.

Feel free to drop your thoughts in the Facebook comment section and give Casey a BIG welcome back!
