    NASCAR fan killed by lightning strike at Pocono

    Post by Guest on Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:32 pm

    LONG POND, Pa. (AP) -- Brian Mattson and Tom Deacher climbed into their truck and got set to leave saturated Pocono Raceway. That's when the lightning bolt slammed into a tent canopy just a couple of rows away from where they parked, shooting off sparks like a Roman candle.

    The NASCAR fans jumped out and found two men on the ground. Deacher and others tried to administer CPR until paramedics arrived.

    ''When the tent collapsed, I knew it wasn't right,'' Deacher said.

    The lightning strike was one of two that hit the just outside the track Sunday during a confusing and tragic end to a shortened day of racing. One of the bolts killed 41-year-old Brian Zimmerman, and a total of nine others were injured.

    I understand that but racing has been in my family since they were racing dirt tracks and they had other jobs and the only ones who got paid any thing was 1st 2nd and 3rd.

    Yup. That was when you brought what you had. No race teams, no sponsers.


    Just racing.
