Speedway Motorsports, Inc. President and CEO Marcus Smith on the Passing of Robert Yates

“On behalf of everyone at Speedway Motorsports, we send our deepest condolences to Carolyn, Doug, Amy and the entire Yates family. Robert Yates left a lasting impression on the NASCAR family through his many years as a groundbreaking engine builder and leading car owner. Robert could handle any challenge in the race of life, and did so while inspiring others and building friendships. We’re proud that as a Charlotte native, Robert enjoyed significant success at Charlotte Motor Speedway – his home track – including five NASCAR Cup Series points wins and an unforgettable victory in the 1992 NASCAR All-Star Race. Robert’s 2018 induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame could not be more deserved. He was a tremendous friend, family man and pioneer of the sport. He is greatly missed.”
