That was the Man's need to be stupid here.

He was one of Nascar's finest and at the age of 71 felt it was time to end his life.
Watched many a race with him in the field.You will be missed.

Drove with cigarettes taped to the dash for yellows and needed the tips of his index finger gloves cut off so he could feel the car.

Set up every car in IROC for years

a true legend

I'm not much of a racing fan, but I knew of him growing up. I read all about him when I heard he died, and he definitely seems to have been a larger than life character. Very sad to hear of someone who's in so much pain that they think taking their own life is the only way out. RIP
