Yates died on Monday. He once told a college professor, according to ESPN, that he would not amount to anything because he spent too much time working on vehicles than studying.
He will be apart of the 2018 NASCAR Hall of Fame Class. He is also a championship owner, as Dale Jarrett won the 1999 NASCAR Championship with Yates as the owner.
The Hall of Famer was dealing with liver cancer over the past year.
“God created me,” he said in August. “He’ll fix me. If he needs me, he’ll take me. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for.”
“He worked in every facet of the shop,” Jarrett said this past May, according to ESPN. “We knew what a great job he did building engines, but he could work on the chassis, work on aerodynamics, [and] spent many hours with us in the wind tunnel.”
