BP was one of the greats! RIP, Benny

tprice, you are right on. He made you feel like you knew him. A real class act. Watching on tv will not be the same.

here are a couple special pics I would like to share, Benny was a special person and this day I will never forget.
I was 14 and knew everything and Benny poked his big ole finger in my chest and said "stay in school and go to college" This was like coming from the almighty.
It was a big day even Paul Newman was there with some unknown actor named Tom Cruise they were promoting the color of money and supposedly this is when Cruise got the idea of "Days Of Thunder"





This other picture was taken during testing in 2001. This is my fiance Karen and Benny always the wise guy said "she's to cute to be with you."
I remember her saying "I was afraid to put my arm around him and he just put is arm around me."

I will miss him as a longtime friend and inspiration to always treat others as you want to be treated.
I pray for Terry and his family, I know the grief has to be overwhelming.

Great picture of a very young Geoff Bodine. I hated Geoff when he raced the NE circuit he was unstoppable.
I believe that is Buddy Baker with the Crisco outfit.
Great pictures funkingrv
