Louis Brewster, the leading veteran motorsports voice in the Inland Empire and beloved longtime sports editor of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin died near his Victorville home Monday due to complications from diabetes. He was 70.
Brewster wrote for the Bulletin and its predecessor, the Ontario Daily Report, for 41 years before retiring in 2017. He was one of the few remaining writers to have chronicled races at Ontario Motor Speedway, Riverside International Raceway and Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, as well as NHRA events in Pomona.
“His passion for the job was unmatched. He opened a lot of doors,” said son Scott Brewster, who worked for the Daily Bulletin for five years. ‘It wasn’t easy being a Latino in journalism. He didn’t care what people thought. He was an inspiration for me that I carried into the rest of my life.”
That passion and affable personality reached every part of the Inland sports community, including high schools, colleges and of course, motorsports.
