Dave, Dean, Sharon, Judy, Robin;
I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I remember watching him race at Auto City in his yellow Camaro. I also remember his sense of humor as well. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Carl you always brightened up my day...I was fortunate enough to know you all my life. Your friendship to Dad meant the world to him. I'm not sure if there is racing in heaven but if so I'm sure Dad had a car just waiting for you! May the Peace of Christ fill the lives of all who held you dear...Until we meet again.

Carl "Yogi" York. The biggest reason I've been a life long race fan. I'll never forget going to the races with Carl and David as a kid. We were long time neighbors. I will always keep great memories. RIP my friend, and God's Peace to your entire family.
