Godspeed, Benny... We'll Miss You

Benny Parsons died today at age 65.  Parsons was the 1973 Winston Cup Champion and upon his retirement after 1988, became perhaps the most legendary and well-loved announcer in the sport. 

I am extremely sad today.  I can't put in to words what it's like when someone that you've practically grown up with dies.  I never personally met Benny Parsons.  But, I think I speak for millions when I say that losing Benny is like losing a family member.  I... I can't really say anything else.

Feel free to leave your memories of Benny in the comments below.
