Condolences to family and friends of veteran NASCAR reporter DAVID POOLE, who died TUESDAY of a heart attack at his home in STANFIELD, NC at 50. The CHARLOTTE OBSERVER reporter hosted a daily racing talk show, "THE MORNING DRIVE," on SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO's SIRIUS NASCAR RADIO channel.
POOLE started his career with a brief stint at the VIRGINIAN PILOT in NORFOLK before moving to his hometown GASTONIA GAZETTE, then left in 1989 to write for the PALM BEACH POST, returning to NORTH CAROLINA a year later at the OBSERVER.
