    Post NHRA driver Scott Kalitta killed



    from Autoblog:nhra driver killed
    It is never pleasant to report auto-related tragedies. Thats why it's particularly saddening to report the death of NHRA driver Scott Kalitta, who suffered a horrific crash during Funny Car qualifying at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ on Saturday. Witnesses pegged his speed to be in the range of 300 mph when his engine exploded, engulfing the car in flames. Kalitta was the '94 and '95 Top Fuel champion and his presence will certainly be missed in the NHRA. He is survived by his wife and two sons. We extend our deepest condolences to Mr. Kalitta's family and friends.

    I really feel for Connie. He is a tough a guy as I have ever known, but this is going to be difficult for him. My heart goes out to the whole family, team etc.
    Gonna miss you Scotty.
