Infineon Raceway Statement Regarding the Passing of David Poole

SONOMA, Calif. (April 28, 2009) -- The following is a statement from Steve Page, president and general manager of Infineon Raceway, about the passing of motor-sports journalist David Poole:

"NASCAR racing was David Poole's world and that world is a lesser place without David in it. David's writing and analysis was always accessible to the casual racing fan, but his real talent was as a contrarian, raising the kinds of thought-provoking questions that could engage the people whose lives revolve around the sport.

David always told me his trips to the Northern California coast were the ones he looked forward to most every year. Although we never quite sold him on the virtues of road racing, I always figured we needed just one more race here to bring him around. I'm sorry we won't have that chance."
