Makes me glad I was able to say hi to him at Speedweek and introduce my boy to him. Another hero gone.... Godspeed Mr. Diest.

With Jim another human giant from the salt passed away....he was in the same line as Bob Higbee, Don Vesco, Nolan White, Carl Heap.........

I hope they let him make his last walk in his trademark......

the blue workman dress and the cigar...........

My heart is with his family and all his friends who will miss him, so as I do............

Jim was always ready to help a racer in need. He certainly helped Team Arrow on more than one occasion. I will miss talking to him this year.

Best wishes to the Deist family.

Godspeed Jim

An honour to have met the man. He has helped us out every year. One year I asked him for a hat and he gave me the one on his head. Best wishes to his family.  Godspeed Jim.

Perhaps the greatest epitaph might be the acknowledgement that one man's life saved so many others.
