Mike, if you check back later, they usually update these stories as more information becomes available. They are very good about doing that. }~)

@Anthony, don't be so morosely insensitive.

I don't think Anthony is being insensitive-I was confused by the story as well and wondered the same thing.....because the article mentions the coroners office.

That is so scary. My son rides that track a couple times a month. You have to wear all your safety gear! I'm not saying this guy wasn't... But most riders 18 and over usually don't ware chest protectors or neck braces. I think they should be required. I hope he is ok.

Wow stories like this remind me how dangerous rideing can be if you push your limits... I want to know the status of the riders recovery.

The article read that the Coroners Office had NOT been called. Anthony is being insensitive to the parents & relatives that might be reading this blog.

My son John was racing there as well on Saturday. He was one of the first ones to get to Chase to see if he is okay. It has been very difficult for my sons. They would see him at the track. They said Chase was the fastest one on the track. Praying for comfort for the Alessandro family!!
