Just horrible. There can only be so many close calls before something like this happens. I've seen a hundred of them in P/M alone and there was Lindberg and Head incident in F/C earlier this season. That was just pure luck nobidy got hurt.

Condolences to the family and friends.

We were just racing with him in Huntsville 2 weeks ago.

A very nice man with a great presence.

RIP.

Am I missing something? A racer dies from injuries at the event and not one word mentioned from anyone. Not one fing person during the entire broadcast. However the show starts off with nothing but crashes. Something is wrong not mentioning someone lost their life.
