The car was covered up and the driver was loaded in the ambulance. Said to have been Billy Woolridge's car.

I talked to family this afternoon, he is on a vent and has no brain activity and the family is asking for all our prayers! I was there last night and saw the whole thing happen, I go every weekend to Richmond Raceway and sometimes accidents happen. The Track officials and the Richmond Rescue Squad did a super job taking care of Billy. My prayers go out to his family!

Thats all that place has ever been good for. It needs to be torn down and turned into farm land. That way those so called drivers could stop wasting their families money on stupidity and allow their kids to get clothes somewhere besides the open concern.

Heck, maybe they could even get a Christmas present or two that the fire department don't have to bring them.

So now the truth comes out. Another person harmed by the rescue rangers. Was they involved in the fight as well.

Another bunch of losers that need to be disbanded and never allowed to endanger innocent people again.

you know what you dumb ass if you dont like it move. But at least have some respct for this guys family. Oh yeah i have some people houses that live by the track and let me say you all have no right to put people down. Some of those homes look like some hills have eyes sh*t. So people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. So move haha
