NASCAR loses a great fan

But Mitch Zannette wouldn't have it any other way.  He died in the infield at Daytona three days before the Daytona 500.  After doctors gave him just days to live, he decided that he wanted to see the race.  He checked himself out of the hospital and headed to Florida with his partner, Tammy, his son, Mitchell, and his brother, Joe.  They made the trip in a rented RV.  Mitch enjoyed every minute of his last days; meeting one of the Sprint Cup girls, walking on the beach one last time, visiting the garage area, and even managing to talk his way trackside during the short track races.  His favorite driver was Dale Earnhardt Sr. and his family is convinced that he is now in heaven spending time with Dale.  dream fulfilled
