Shocked is not a strong enough word to express my feelings, so I can't even imagine what the family is going through. Jim was one of, if not THE nicest, most generous, kind and helpful people I ever met in motorsports. To say he will be missed is beyond the definition of "understatement." He never met a stranger and anyone who didn't know him, once they encountered his smile, they were no longer a stranger. RIP, Jim. Prayers, thoughts, hugs and love to the Pace family.
