Robert Yates posthumously inducted into NASCAR Hall of Fame

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Robert Yates lived long enough to hear his name announced as a NASCAR Hall of Famer.

Although he lost his battle with liver cancer five months after he was voted into the Hall, Yates was able to write his own acceptance speech for Friday night's ceremony. It was read by Dale Jarrett, a Hall of Famer who won the 1999 championship driving for Yates.
