Sneak onto the track for a lap two, I'm sure no one will notice. Let us know how everyone responds to the 07

Watched some great racing.....except for the death of Jon Couch and his mom, Frances. They both died in a plane crash over the track Friday night.  He was the owner of TOBC Racing, just clinched the 2014 AMA Supersport championship with rider Hayden Gillim

Did you see the plane? That's tragic.

Nope, just reports on the local news. The plane caught fire and there wasn't much left.  Yes it is....the racing community is still in shock.

Yet another challenge for AMA Pro Racing, this team was at NJMP 2 weeks ago for the final DMG race, ever! Huge transporter and no paid sponsors. Mr. Couch was a true sportsman. So sad.
This from the web:
According to reports from the scene, TOBC Racing owner and racer Jon Couch crashed his high-performance propeller plane at VIR late this afternoon today after buzzing the registration building while doing barrel rolls at relatively low altitude.
Couch, age 46, raced his Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike in the AMA Pro event held at New Jersey Motorsports Park last weekend.
He attracted attention by sponsoring, supporting, fielding and helping both up-and-coming riders and seasoned veterans in various ways. Riders who have ridden for TOBC at one time or another include 2014 AMA Pro Supersport Champion Hayden Gillim, Taylor Knapp, Harwell, Curtis Murray, Chris Crosslin, Darrell Emerson, Nick McFadden, Kaleb De Keyrel, Palmer Kling, Seth Starnes, Russ Masecar, Brian Kcraget, Elena Myers and others. http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/team-owner-jon-couch-crashes-plane-at-vir/
