Sad news - Roger Hill...


For all modified fans, and fans of grassroots racing in general...
From Nascar.com...

"DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Funeral services and visitation plans have been announced for Roger Hill, owner of the No. 79 and No. 19 cars in the NASCAR Whelen Modified and Southern Modified Tours. Hill passed away Thursday following a brief illness.

The family will receive friends at Moody's funeral home, located at 202 W. Blue Ridge Street in Stuart, Va., from 6 until 8 p.m. Sunday.

The funeral will be held Monday at 3 p.m. at Stateline Primitive Babtist Church located at 1060 Hillbilly Hollow in Westfield, N.C.

Here is the complete information for both locations:

Moody's Funeral Home, 202 W. Blue Ridge St, Stuart, VA. 24171. Phone number: 1-276-694-3145.

Funeral Location: Stateline Primitive Babtist Church, 1060 Hillbilly Hollow, Westfield, NC 27053"

We as hobbyist sim racers and editors all owe the guys in the real world of motorsports a debt of gratitude. These are the guys who make us wannabe racers, and why we stay up till 3am racing and tinkering with cars, paintjobs and racetracks. Godspeed, Roger.

I read about this the other day. Very sad news. I've always been a long time fan of the #79 Coors Light modifieds which I think have been some of the hottest looking rides on any tour.

R.I.P Roger.

Rogeer had to be the hardest working man in motorsports for the least amount of pay. To have his car run in both modified touring series and place in top five in both is a feat. I never heard how much Coors contributed to his efforts, but this car always showed up ready to haul the mail and put on a high class show. I sure hope the Hillbilly Racing team continues to operate.
