We are so very sorry to hear of Jims sudden passing. For many years my son Ross and I traveled to
Richmond Raceway with Jim and the gang. We have many wonderful memories of those happy times.
Jim was a walking encyclopedia of NASCAR history and he enjoyed sharing it. He was quite a guy and
We will miss him. Rest In Peace Jim. Our sincere condolences to Jims family and friends.
