  1. I saw the statement from the association. What struck a Friend was that they were quick to say there is enough run off for the driver to be able to stop the car. Are they discretely trying to say that they are not accepting any responsibilities?

    • I had the same thoughts. I made a comment under the post I note they deleted it. That hill is a DANGER. ABRA did not take all necessary precautions to ensure that drivers are safe. They should be held liable. Yes drivers know the sport is dangerous but…. Enough run off or not… THAT HILL AT THE END OF THE TRACK

  2. PRAY?
    Asking the ‘…public to Pray.’

    Better listen to the song ‘…Tell Laura I Love Her [You Tube].

    Better yet, keep off the darn ‘…Deadly Track,’ or stay out the darn way.

    In the first place, when the road was constructed, it was never intended for ‘…Drag Racing.’

      Did you listen to see how ‘sad’ that song is?

      Tommy was ‘…driving at a deadly pace; …hoping to win the race.

      Lost every darn thing- ‘…Life and Laura.’

  3. RIP MARCUS another courts family gone. Sigh this is to much. Condolences to your family. Alot of these comments on here proves that as the years go by humans have no remorse no respect no care anymore
