NASCAR loses a legend

Sad news to report in the world of NASCAR, Robert Yates passed away at the age of 74 after a battle with liver cancer. When I think about Robert Yates I remember Davey Allison and then Dale Jarrett -- and the amazing power the Yates cars always had (pure speed at places like Talladega and Daytona).

Remember the 1996 Brickyard 400 with two Yates cars going at it?
