 DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - The racing family has gathered to remember and celebrate former Darlington Raceway president and NASCAR executive Jim Hunter.
Hunter was 71 when he died Friday night in Daytona Beach, Fla., after a yearlong battle with cancer. He had been an adviser to NASCAR executives and drivers for more than half a century in his role as journalist, promoter and one of the sport's top administrators.
The service is being held at Darlington Presbyterian Church with a reception to following at Darlington Raceway. The electronic sign in front of the track said simply, ``Jim, we'll miss you.''
Hunter served as Darlington's president from 1993 through 2001, when he moved to NASCAR headquarters to lead an expanded public relations effort.
