A Sad Day for NASCAR and Sports Journalism

Posted by Amy in General

One of NASCAR’s journalists and four time winner of the National Motorsports Press Association’s George Cunningham Award, David Poole passed away on Monday. It’s a sad day for motorsports indeed but most of all for his family- as he was only 50 years old and leaves behind a family: a wife, two sons, a daughter and a grandson.  Lots of bloggers and journalists are writing wonderful tributes to him- so I would like to point you in the direction of a couple of ones that stand out to me:

The NASCAR INSIDERS: The End of an Era

Dustin Long: Bidding A Friend Fairwell

Monte Dutton: David Poole Leaves A Void, Personally and Professionally

Revvin’ Jim’s Rants and Raves: David Poole Will Be Missed

NASCAR.COM: Charlotte Writer Poole dies

    I will miss David Poole. He was part of my morning drive to work. I didn’t always agree with his opinions, but I respected him. I didn’t know him personally, but he was part of my day and I was lost yesterday.
