Yea, they'd be much better off getting ripped off at one of those overpriced hack-job brake and muffler places.

I heard the car that hit him, had the name "Death Maker" on the side of it.
It was not Death Maker it said Death Dealer. And it was tragic. It was not his fault thought he got hit by another vehicle which caused him to hit the man. I saw the whole thing happen and it was the most disturbing thing ever. I will never be able to get the image out of my head. I give my condolences to the family. I hope he is never forgotten.

the person who hit the official feels terrible he is a friend of mine i have been running in this derby for 19 years this has been a big problem for years the officials should be up over the barriers like any other derby these guys should have never been on the track it is like standing in the middle of a bull ring it is hard to see sometimes with the smoke back end in the air mud ect. I feel terrible for everybody involved I cant believe this did'nt happen before all it takes is a person to trip slip in the mud you would never see him on the ground

I pray for the family. Hope the management of this event takes heed and institutes stricter guidelines.

Maybe if people didn't have such a thirst for this crap (and such low I.Q.'s that seeing things get smashed up is their entertainment), these sorts of things wouldn't happen. How many boxers have permanent brain damage because neaderthals want to see one man bash another's brains in and are willing to pay for it? One step above cavemen. Seriously. Now watch them go ahead and try to defend their "fun." I feel sorry for the poor family. What a way to go.
who are you to say what you said? To make it seem like the guy who died was just a low IQ-ed redneck makes me want to kick your ass. This guy loved what he was doing and accidents do happen. I hope we could all go while doing what we love. Which for you is being a skeptical bitch that has nothing else to do besides degrade people.

Wouldnt it have been easier to dig the dead dude up, rather than a thread that is 5 yrs old?
