AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY PRESIDENT GILLIAN ZUCK ON THE PASSING OF NASCAR VICE PRESIDENT JIM HUNTER
"Jim Hunter was the epitome of all that is meaningful about NASCAR. He set a standard for professionalism in the garage and in life. We will miss him as an ambassador of our sport, but more importantly, I personally, will miss him as a friend, a role model and my go to guy on how to deal with the really hard problems. No one knew the drivers, the fans or the sport like Jim. To say he will be missed does not even begin to describe our loss."
