That’s just what we need at this point. Prayers to the family.

Man, I'm ready for some tin foil. NASCAR drivers get warned about NRA sponsorship, bad publicity, etc. and now some guy shoots himself at the race? The day before major gun legislation comes up in the Senate? Whoa.

Have there been suicides at any other NASCAR events?

Firearms + alcohol + emotion = deadly combination. Sad outcome for the guy’s family and NASCAR Community.
