Scott Kalitta was killed today in a horrific wreck at the end of a track in Englishtown, NJ. My mom and brother informed me by txt message today while I was at work. My brother, the writer, was working at the end of the race track when it happened and is pretty shaken up. What did my txt from him say ... "i saw things i wish i could unsee". I can't and don't want to imagine.
Every death reminds us all that it could happen to anyone ... and most of us that love the sport would not let that fact even slow us down from strapping into a nitro funny car.
