I was told Sunday evening by his motorcross friends that Chase passed away from his injuries, is this correct?

I've read 10 positive comments & 1 inquiring question. Who are "ALL these negative people" that you you speak of? I only see one insensitive jerk: LHJ. So the ENTIRE comments section shouldn't be lumped in with him.

Well said Gabriel. We were there too and it was very difficult just to be on the sidelines. I cant imagine the pain the family is going through now. Its especially challenging when you have all the young children around to explain this tragic accident. We didn't know him personally but there is a connection we all share on these Saturday's. We shall continue to offer support to the family by finishing the series in honor of Chase. Peace to his family and friends.
