“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.”
