This weekend at Maxton, fellow rider Dave Owen crashed and was killed. Dave was a well known and respected rider and tuner. He will be sorely missed. Bad year for LSR folks.Offer a prayer for his family and friends.

What terrible news. After years of doing amazing things without serious injuries, land speed racing seems to have taken some huge hits lately.
Are there that more people doing it now? Or are speeds going up past technology again? Or is it just bad luck?

IMO it is the speeds have went up quite a bit recently. reports are Dave was going aprox 220 mph when he went therough the traps and Maxton has a very short shut down area.
