Yates posthumously inducted into HOF
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Robert Yates lived long enough to hear his name announced as a NASCAR Hall of Famer.
Although he lost his battle with liver cancer five months after he was voted into the Hall, Yates was able to write his own acceptance speech for Friday night's ceremony. It was read by Dale Jarrett, a Hall of Famer who won the 1999 championship driving for Yates.
"When I started in racing, this was not the goal," Jarrett read from Yates' speech. "All I wanted to do throughout my career was win races. I would always say, I don't race for the money, I race to win. For me, that's what it's always been about, but to be part of this year's induction class is a true honor."
