Two members of NASCAR’s historic families come together (Cone!)

Always overlooked, the Cone family belongs in the discussion of the most important NASCAR families. What other family has members willingly putting their lives on the line (literally) ever week after numerous tragedies to ensure that cars barreling at up to 200 MPH slow down in time to get to pit road?

It's long overdue that the NASCAR world showed some respect to the Cone family and with the emergence of the Cone family's Twitter account, that respect is finally building.

However, I'm not sure that this is what we all had in mind.
