Sad news for NASCAR fans

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE race fan. I started watching NASCAR back during the 2000 season.

There has been some sad news in the NASCAR world recently. First, Bobby Hamilton died January 7th after losing his battle with neck cancer. And I come home from work today to find an email news alert from NASCAR.com saying that Benny Parsons died today, losing his battle with lung cancer. I didn’t really see Bobby race much since he was in the Truck Series. But I did see Benny call the races for NBC. While I wasn’t a fan of the NBC broadcasts, I did like Benny. He was the only sane one in the booth … LOL.

Both men will be missed in the racing world.
