    James was truly a great guy and friend. He would do anything for anyone regardless of how late he had to work. I can’t think of anyone who didn’t like him unless they were tired of being beat by him at the track. A truly depressing loss, and he will be missed more than he would have ever known. It was truly a pleasure to have known him and be around him for the past 20 years that I have known him. Going to miss him in life, and especially at the track. He was the king of trash talking, but could also back it up. Things just will not be the same without him around. Love you and gonna really miss you brother.
