We've lost Sam Bass at age of 57 years old. He passed away this morning. I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of his passing. He lost his fight awaiting a kidney early this morning. He had been fighting stage 1 diabetes for years and had some major health issues along the way including amputation and kidney failure. Just last year the IRS went after his treasures for taxes he owned and couldn't pay due to his overwhelming medical bills. Sam never complained, he fought and kept hope to find a match and get a new kidney. A foundation had been organized by some mutual friends who've been involved in NASCAR a long time called the Sam Bass Kidney Foundation, Inc. and the special car was in Daytona in North Turn this week for awareness and trying to find a donor.
I had met him a few times back when I lived in Charlotte and even had a private tour and some conversations about his work with him. Always so kind and nice to everyone he met,
Know many of you have met Sam Bass, seen or own some of his fantastic art work in NASCAR.
RIP Sam Bass, you may have had more race fans than any NASCAR Driver every has. No doubt you were admired by millions.
