The greatest tribute will be for someone to state that there is no way to replace BP - as an announcer or as a person!

I've known Benny for many years. He was one of the few NASCAR drivers I ever truly admired. In addition to being a good driver, he was a good man. He'll be sorely missed!

Haven't seen any reports explaining the complications. Last I heard is that the treatment damaged one of his lungs. Hope he does well!

Seems like for the longest time, people in NASCAR seemed to be invincible.
Now, two drivers have been hit with cancer this year...sad to see, by all means.

Benny is a great "voice" for NASCAR and speaks his mind. Was a good driver especially at Talladega.
Does anyone know if he was ever a smoker?

I wish him well in his battle with cancer. My wife and I will keep him in our thought and pray for him.

I may not have always agreed with Benny but I admired how he raced and later spoke his mind.
