NHRA's Scott Kalitta killed in crash
27 minutes ago

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J.(AP) Scott Kalitta died Saturday when his Funny Car crashed and burst into flames during qualifying for the Lucas Oil NHRA SuperNationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park.

State police confirmed that the 46-year-old Kalitta, a two-time Top Fuel champion who had 18 career victories, was killed in the accident.

Witnesses told The Star-Ledger of Newark that Kalitta's Toyota Solara was traveling at an estimated speed of 300 mph when the crash occurred.

The Palmetto, Fla., resident started his career at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in 1982. His father, Connie Kalitta, was a longtime driver and team owner known as "The Bounty Hunter," and his cousin, Doug Kalitta, also drives competitively.

Yes it does! I don't think they will show it again.I just happen to tune into NHRA Qualifying to find an empty stadium seat type situation and people crying,i was confused,and then it hit me....Something happened...When they played it,i cried because i knew how bad it was...So sad for the family and friends.I am still in shock right now! I never knew him,but i watch NHRA every time they air it and he was a funny guy a good family man and a great Funny car racer and he will be missed by so many.

Prayers for his family and friends. We are thinking that he must have been unconscious since he didn't brake or head to the run off road into the field.

Well, if this is your way of saying you look up to me, so be it.

I hope people don't get the impression that you are copying me even MORE so.
