    Bill was a local from near where I am. He was always fast and was a multiple time track champion. He is one of the nicest guys anyone would ever meet out in the pits. Just a good dude all around.

    Apparently he was on the outside of three wide heading into turn 1 on lap 2 at Perris Auto Speedway in Southern CA and he caught the wall, rolled and was hit in the driver's door by another car. From what I gather online it seems like it was brain trauma as I read an MRI and CT scan were being done before they announced his passing.

    I am on the other side of the country and never got to see him race. But is always sad to hear the news, and like everyone else here we appreciate the drivers. I will often google a driver lost to an racing accident, to read about the life and career I missed.

    RIP.
