Join the SCCA and race on the track, not streets. It just isn't worth it.

Sentinel, the crash occured on Apopka Vineland Road. Rock Springs Road doesn't even intersect Kilgore Road. I know because this accident happened behind my house. Even wftv says it was "Apopka Vineland near Sand Lake Road". I'm very disappointed in the Sentinel's lack of backchecking lately. The article also says near Apopka, but this is nowhere near Apopka.

The ironic part is, the passengers girlfriend is a very well know SCCA racer.

he was reportedly going in excess of 100 mph according to the news. sorry, but if that is the case, a seatbelt isn't doing jackshit to save a life. this man didnt deserve such a horiffic death, but this what happens when common sense is lacking...

Please know that family and friends read this... a life was lost and a life should never be lost in that way. Please be respectful for the sake of the family... they will or have already seen this. A son is not in his parents arms tonight. Lets remember Jorge and embrace his life.
Please stop.
God Bless RIP 10/6/08

Wow, I can't believe you'd even attempt to bring another person into this. People are hurting over this, and so is she...

By the way to clear things up, they were NOT racing another car.

He was not racing his car and you dont know the story so seriously chill out with the nonsense.. jorge was more then a friend.. i saw him sat night downtown and the last thing he said to me was "Lafa, give me a call this week so we can chill" I am glad the passenger is well.

Wow...are you guys serious?
Lafa you are 100% one knows the story so you all need to find something better to do that assume something about a dear friend/ famiy to us....don't play with something you have not experienced! I will pray for all of you and for amazing human being who has done everything good in his life, and for that reason God wanted to take him early.
RIP Jorge Luis...I love you so much and you will be missed but never forgotten.
