Default Sad day at the track...

We had a snowmobile racer die at the track last night. Apparently something broke and started leaking fluid near the finishline and got under the track and lost control and hit the wall nearly head on at about 150mph. He was pronounced dead at the scene. :cry:

Thoughts and prayers sent to his family and friends.

That's sad to hear. I know this is going to sound kinda bad, but at least he was doing what he loved to do.

RIP.

Yes, it's always tragic to loose a fellow racer/ human being. With that said, at least if I happen to end up being plugged in somehow, my memories of all my races and fun car times will still be in my memory banks.......

That's too bad....Since childhood ,,,I've always wondered..If we could only see the future 30 seconds ahead of time..I guess God,, in his infinate wisdom made us this way because he wants us to live our lives doing what mkes us happy....Think about it!!!......Dan.
