“I’m honored to introduce a legend who has meant so much to the sport over the last two decades,” he began.

Tom later added, “[Jeff] felt as comfortable discussing a championship with George Bush as breaking down Homestead with Kyle Busch, as at-ease with discussing SNL skits with Jimmy Fallon as racing door-to-door with Jimmie Johnson. And with that, he brought joy to millions, used his immense and deserved popularity for the betterment of the world both at home and abroad.”

    Tom, it was a nice gesture, and the man was clearly touched. But can a long time fan make a suggestion? Lay off the pasta! After 50, you gain a lot faster and more easily than in your younger days. Trust me on this.
