this past sunday a pro-level racer w/the mra died.. on the last lap of the last race of the season.

don e. bruner #166... 29yrs old.. racing on a zx6r. i wasnt there but people have told me that there are about 150ft of skid marks leading up to a corner called the dragon slide.. a sharp right hander at the bottom of a long down hill straight.. he went straight off the track w/out even trying to turn.. equipment failure is to blame at this time... flight for life picked him up & flew him to denver where he either died there or on the way.. details are sketchy right now as ive been told by 2 different sources both close to him.. neither of who was at the race... for colorado riders/racers here is memorial/funeral info...

My condolences to his family and friends. Quite sad. I hope his death wasn't in vain and the race track will make necessary changes.
