If I can be of any assistance to any of you, please do not hesitate to call on me. I met your mother a few times at the track and of course in Vegas. She was a wonderful person and will be missed.

Chris, Jimmy and the entire Spencer family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I never had the chance to meet her, but hear so much about her from everyone in racing over the years when I lived in Virginia and even after moving to North Carolina to be closer to my daughter, Lorrie. God be with each of you during this difficult time. If I can do anything, please let me know.
