Such a shame! I used to sit in turn 1 & 2 at The Grove as a kid with my racing flag set and tried to copy what Butch was doing on the flagstand. I told him that later on as I got older and he got a good laugh out of it and he said it was nice to have fans haha/

I said this when he retired, and I'll say it again - his version of the "2 to go" was my favorite.

RIP, Butch.
