Thomas Poteet & Son Funeral Directors reported his death on its Web site. Arrangements are incomplete.
“He was a Republican before Republicans were cool,” said former Columbia County Commissioner Frank Spears. “He was a kingpin in county politics for a long timeand remained very active.”
BROOKLYN, Mich. — Joey Logano plopped into a seat, getting a much-needed break, when the 26-year-old driver found out he was just a part of history.
Logano pulled away from the pack to win the FireKeepers Casino 400 and was followed by Chase Elliott, 20, and Kyle Larson, 23, the youngest top three in NASCAR Sprint Cup history.
“That’s pretty cool,” he said when informed of the feat Sunday.
