So Nascar driver Bobby East passed away on Wednesday. No, he didn't "pass away". He was stabbed to death while while pumping gas by a violent repeat offender wanted for parol violations in southern California.

CBS had more on the story:
A man who allegedly stabbed and killed an accomplished auto racer at a gas station in Westminster was killed by police Friday night following the service of an arrest warrant at an Anaheim apartment building.
Westminster Police Department detectives, with assistance from neighboring law enforcement agencies, attempted to serve the warrant at the apartment building located on the 3300 block of Lincoln Avenue.
The subject of the warrant was identified as Trent William Millsap, a 27-year-old transient man who was considered the suspect in Thursday’s deadly stabbing.
Because Millsap was believed to be armed and dangerous, the West County SWAT Team — comprised of officers from Cypress, Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Westminster and Seal Beach — also assisted with the response.
At some point during the warrant service, Millsap became confrontational with officers, which resulted in them opening fire. It’s unclear if the suspect engaged with police or not.
Millsap was taken to the hospital for treatment, but died from wounds he received from the shooting.

Breitbart got the scoop too:
NASCAR star Bobby East has died after being stabbed in the chest by a homeless man at a California gas station.
He was 37 years old.
Police have arrested Trent William Millsap, 27, a homeless man who allegedly stabbed the three-time US Auto Club (USAC) Champ three times in the chest as he fueled his vehicle at a Westminster gas station on Wednesday.
Emergency services rushed East to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“The victim was found on the ground suffering from a serious stab wound to the chest area,” Westminister Police said in a statement via the Daily Mail. “Officers attempted life-saving measures until OCFA paramedics arrived and transported the victim to a local trauma center, where the victim succumbed to his injury.”
Millsap is accused of stabbing another man at the gas station before stabbing East.
“East, a native of Torrance, California, was a three-time US Auto Club (USAC) champion,” Yahoo! reports. “He won the SAC Silver Crown championships in 2012 and 2013.”
They ain’t “homeless people.” They are drugged up psychopaths who will murder you randomly. This is horrific and also normal now in Democrat controlled areas. You can be murdered anytime now in blue areas. Avoid them.https://t.co/qFHKANLY6L
