Jim Pedley of Sporting News has a tribute story for Jim Hunter, VP of Corporate Communications for NASCAR. Hunter is currently battling cancer. Writes Pedley:
Hunter is there and available and ready to answer on behalf of NASCAR. Easy questions, tough questions. Most especially, questions the answers to which, ticket-buying racing fans are entitled. I like Jim Hunter, a former reporter himself. I like him a whole lot. As a NASCAR official and as a human being.
Hunter has held his current position with NASCAR since 2001. [h/t: O’Dwyer’s]
