Quote from Tom Compton, president, NHRA, on the passing of David Poole

"The motorsports world lost one of its most definitive and influential reporters with the passing of David Poole this morning," said Tom Compton, president, NHRA. "He was a true friend to the sport of NHRA and NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing, and his interest grew exponentially when we announced we were bringing our series to the Charlotte area.

"Personally, I enjoyed his colorful personality and how passionate he was about our sport and particularly our drivers. On behalf of everyone at NHRA, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this very difficult time."
