Hard week for racing in Nevada....

First the P-51 Mustang crash.

Now 2 people die in the Silver State Classic.

Camaro driver and navigator die in Silver State Classic crash

The Silver State Classic Challenge had a brush with tragedy on Sunday when two competitors lost their lives competing in the event. According to the Nye County Sherriff's Office, 53-year-old driver Richard DeKneef of California and his co-driver, 41-year-old Merille Hill of Ely, Nevada were both killed on Sunday when their Chevrolet Camaro blew a tire, rolled several times and caught fire. Both men were reportedly trapped inside the blaze.

The Silver State Classic Challenge is an open-road rally held across 90 miles of Route 318 in Nevada, where professional and amateur drivers alike can push their vehicles to the upper limits of speed in a sanctioned event.

DeKneef and Hill's deaths are the first fatalities at the event since 1992. Organizers have held the race every year since 1988. Our sympathies go out to the DeKneef and Hill families.
A friend of mine was supposed to race his Pantera this year, but was not able to due to traveling for business.
