Your final season now is done.
We'll never forget 2001.
With tears and cheers we said goodbye.
At every race, the threes held high.
Your teams, your sons, they gave their all.
They kept the faith. They did not fall.
The other drivers and their crews
Dedicated wins to you.
They carried on with love and pride;
The pain impossible to hide.
The fans stayed true. You'd be so proud.
The stands were full; the cheers so loud!
The family and the friends you loved
Know you guide them from above.
They feel your love through all the pain
And know they'll hold your hand again.
Your strength and compassion left their marks
Upon our sport and in our hearts.
We'll always hold your memories near
And forever wish that you were here.
