    ... after winning the final race of the season



    A stock car racer died while he was taking a ceremonial victory lap died after winning the final asphalt NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified race of the season on Saturday night.

    Devil's Bowl Speedway officials identified the driver as 63-year-old Leon Gonyo of Chazy, New York, and said he suffered an apparent medical problem following the race in Fair Haven, Vermont.

    Gonyo was circling the track when the medical problem occurred and his car accelerated into a wall before bouncing off and making an approach toward the speedway's victory lane area.

    How horrible...

    I would like to say that at least he died doing what he loved, and having just won a race.... but that's just awful.

    It is very sad, don't think I've heard anything like it before.

    Kind of a double win to go out like that.

    Now to the link. I resisted posting that because it comes from a 'controversial' and not 'politically correct' website.

    You say my youtubes are not 'favored' but I posted the Audi commercial for those with flash player issues or Active X filtering.
    I struggle with rules that are moving targets. ...and music is used to clarify my point, add some fun or just share a tune. Why is that BAD?

    So ... here is the link - http://www.plaintruth.com/the_plain_...he-season.html

    But then I suppose you also could have linked to the actual news site,
    that originally posted the article... rather then your favorite political site that reposted the excerpt. DOH!
