The Hamilton family is in my prayers and onLiving Springs Baptist church prayers list, too. I raced with Bobby at Highland Rim Speedway in the 80's. He was a great competer and a great person..He will be deeply missed by all his fans who loved him..

It's really great for the family when they might hopefully read this,that some people know him,raced with him and most importantly respected and loved him for the person he was!Many of us never had the privilage of knowing him personally,so we really enjoy the thoughts,stories and past of the man whom we will miss greatly!! thank you all for the posts of someone you knew and we wish we knew! You were so lucky to know him and can cherish all those memories!

Sincere condolences go out to the family of Benny Parsons. I will always remember him as B.P... I will never forget him announcing the race, he did what he loved and loved what he did. he didn't just hang up the helmet when he was done racing. he continued to still attract fans no matter what he did. he will never be forgotten
