Michael Weekly was driving Jhon Hobbs black nova when it got lose at 200' mark he couldn't recover the car struck the gaurd rail and the rail came in the car severing his leg he was life flighted to grady where he was in ICU over night he passed at 6 am mon. 11-03-08 he was 27 and had a wife and unborn child. the track has needed alot of work for a long time maybe this will open the owners eyes and stop putting all the money in there pocket and fix the track. and VHT more then 60' and replace the guard rail with a wall!!!

Very sad news, I surely hope they have lots of family to help them get through the turbulent waters laying ahead.

RIP Mr. Weekly.
