CGH: 22 yr old killed @ Shadyside Dragway last night

He was from Mount Holly, NC.

Go to www.shelbystar.com for details.

Track was closed, he thought it would be a good idea to run down the track the wrong way after the lights were turned off.

RIP.

What kind of dragstrip has trees you can crash into?

And if the situation is as you described, Darwin wins again...why on earth would you do something stupid like that?

Sorry to hear that. I hate it for the family.

This just proves that 20 yr olds aren't the smartest, they think they're invincible.

The track was not at fault. The owner shut it down, let the medical team go, shut the lights off, everything. After that, the guy then ran the track backwards, didn't get stopped in time and ran into the ditch behind the staging area.

Stupid, yes.

Lights off
Track closed
Raining
EMS already left

And some retard in a Honda gets the bright idea to run down the strip backwards... I don't get it. Sucks that he died, but what could he possibly have been thinking?

"Hey, I know! I'll sneak on the track from the end, drive down to the starting line, turn around, and have it all to myself!"
