James Hylton, son killed in automobile accident

NASCAR acquires ARCA racing series in move to help develop next generation of drivers

Hylton, his son, and crew chief Terry Strange were driving back to SC in the hauler when the accident occurred at about 6 a.m. Saturday on Interstate 85 in northern Georgia, according to Evelyn Hylton.

James Hylton, a two-time victor in NASCAR's premier series and a competitor known for his longevity, has died.

Evelyn Hylton, who lived with her son in Inman, said a police officer came to her door Saturday morning to inform her of the accident.

The elder Hylton began competing in NASCAR's Cup Series in 1964 and over a 32-year-period competed in 602 races. In all, the good-natured Hylton racked up 140 top-five finishes and 301 top-10s in the Cup series. He has four starts in the XFINITY Series, most recently 2011 and one start in the Camping World Truck Series.

With that said, ARCA will continue operating independently until after the 2019 season, at which point NASCAR plans to better align its interests beyond just the three national tours - now known as Monster Energy Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Trucks.

Hylton also attempted 21 Daytona 500s between 1966 and 2007, finishing as high as third in 1967.

NASCAR and ARCA issued a statement on Hylton's death.

NASCAR has acquired fellow stock auto racing organization Automobile Racing Club of America, known as ARCA. We have lost a truly special member of the racing family and a beloved figure among generations of competitors and race fans alike.

James Hylton, 83, and his son James Hylton, Jr., 61, died when their GMC truck traveled off the road and crashed, Fox 59 reported. Before stepping out of the driver's seat at the end of 2013 at age 78, he competed in 175 races, but didn't enjoy the success he had in NASCAR. "You can go race for a little bit". Hylton most frequently competed using No. 48, a auto number that Johnson has used for the entirety of his Monster Energy Series career.

He raced full time in the ARCA Series between 2009 and 2013.

"Every time I see him out there in that 48, it brings a smile to my face", Johnson told the AP.
