“Saddened to hear of my friend Terry Babb this morning. If you haven’t heard, Terry passed away while LEADING the A-Main last night,” fellow racer Shane Cockrum said in a Facebook post. “As sad as I am, I cannot help but smile knowing he achieved the ultimate for us racers, a ride to heaven in a sprint car. As Frank Sinatra so beautifully sang “I Did It My Way” and he certainly did. We had a great relationship and I helped him every chance I got along the way because Terry was an Icon in the Midwest. I can vividly recall the great joy I got in seeing him make the A-Main at the Chili Bowl a few years back, almost as if I had made it myself.
