    Automotive-journalist icon Brock Yates, inventor of the Cannonball Run cross-country road race, writer of successful screenplays and a fixture for decades at Car and Driver, passed away today [October 5th] from complications of Alzheimer's. Yates's columns in Car and Driver attacked everything from the 55-mph speed limit to the arrogance of safety advocate Ralph Nader. They spoke to the frustrations of people who loved cars but who were prevented from enjoying them by meddling government bureaucrats. Yates said in the pages of the magazine and in other outlets in which his work appeared what so many car enthusiasts felt.(AutoWeek). Yates wrote many Auto Racing books including: NASCAR Off The Record (10-6-2016). (Jayski)
