Bobby Hamilton, R.I.P.

NASCAR driver and owner Bobby Hamilton died today at the age of 49.  Hamilton was a four-time winner in Nextel Cup and the 2004 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Champion.  He drove in three races in 2006 before having to quit due to neck cancer.  He fought the disease throughout the year and looked to possibly return in the 2007 season.  This is very sad news, prayers go out to the Hamilton family.

I just heard about Bobby's passing a few hours ago.  How sad!  I thought he was getting better.  May God give his family and friends the strength they need to get through this terrible time.  Rest in Peace Bobby...
