Not sure what to say?

Robert Yates you will be missed my friend. Yourself and Davey are the reason I got into NASCAR . After losing Davey and now you I really have zero interest in NASCAR any longer. Go rest high on that mountain now along with Davey. RIP

My condolences to the Yates Family and friends on Robert's passing. Indeed, bigger than life, a throwback to the early years of NASCAR. Rest In Peace Sir. in peace. Thank you for everything you did for Bobby and Davey Allison. You will be missed. Deb Stednitz Bellevue, Ne
