Default Racer Died at Baileyton Dragstrip

I don't know any details but evidently a racer Jonathan Walls died this last weekend at Baileyton Dragstrip in Alabama.

I searched and didn't see anything posted on YB so wondered if anyone heard any details.

Was the car home built? That looks terrible! I have seen some bad wrecks at high speeds that didn't look that torn apart..very sorry to see this. I lost a personal friend in 08 during a qualifying round in TA/FC... thoughts for his family.

We raced at that track for the first time a week prior to this. We took a 5.70-.80 car... After 1 1/2 passes, we loaded and went home. Even though it was a 2 hour ride for us. That track was scary. No traction, hardly any prep. Bad dips and especially at the end of the track.

RIP and prayers for the family.
