"I had a car in my contract so when I left, I was going to take the car back and Doug [Melvin, general manager] said, 'Take the car, you've got it for a year.' And I took the car home and drove it back up here a year later," Yost said. "It was a nice car."

"I always like driving by myself," Yost said.
"I flew back. Dropped it off, boom, caught a cab straight to the airport and flew back. That's the only time I've been back here."
