A medical examiner has confirmed that a man who died in the infield during the NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway had shot himself in the head. According to the USA Today, the Tarrant County (Texas) medical examiner’s office on Sunday said the death of 42-year-old Kirk Franklin of Saginaw, Texas, was a suicide. Fort Worth police have said a man who was camping in the infield died of a “self-inflicted injury” after getting into an argument with other campers. The incident happened late in the Sprint Cup race. Police spokeswoman Cpl. Tracey Knight has said alcohol may have been a factor. Knight said several people witnessed the incident, but nobody was in danger. Track spokesman Mike Zizzo say the death occurred “in or around a pickup truck” in part of the infield near the middle of the backstretch. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

  • It's definitely sad that he killed himself. But he probably did it because it finally dawned on him just how many THOUSANDS OF FREAKING HOURS HE HAS WASTED IN HIS LIFE JUST WATCHING CARS GO AROUND A FREAKING TRACK !!!!!!!!!!!!
