Richmond International Raceway President Doug Fritz on the Passing of NASCAR Vice President of Corporate Communications Jim Hunter:

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Jim Hunter. His family and friends, the entire NASCAR community and all of those he touched are at a great loss. There are so many words that can describe Jim Hunter...great leader, visionary and pioneer, just to name a few. Jim personified the definition of 'legend.' To me, he was my mentor, as he was for many others in this sport. I was truly blessed to know Jim Hunter, and was proud to call him my friend. Losing a personal friend and mentor is never easy, but we must recognize the accomplishments and leadership of such a great man. The sport of NASCAR is better today because of Jim Hunter. From the very first day I met Jim, more than 20 years ago, he was always there for me any time I needed advice or a second opinion on any subject. He deservedly received the utmost respect of drivers, owners and industry leaders. Today we have lost a great man. Our condolences go out to his wife, Ann, son, Scott and daughter, Amy.
