NASCAR Great Benny Parsons Dies

NASCAR champion and TV analyst Benny Parsons, known as "BP," has passed away at age 65 from complications of lung cancer.

Last summer we met some lovely people at Disneyland who we discovered, after chatting a bit, were Benny's cousins. We expressed our good wishes for Benny's health, and they told us they were very hopeful that he would recover completely, as the cancer was caught early and he hadn't smoked in decades. Sadly, although he was declared cancer free, he developed a clot in his remaining lung.

Sincere condolences to the Parsons family and his NASCAR and NBC colleagues.
