Auto racing: 87-year-old in ride-along program dies in crash at Texas Motor Speedway

Associated Press

DALLAS Officials say an 87-year-old man has died after the car he was in crashed into the wall at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth over the weekend.

Troy Taylor of the Denton County Medical Examiner's Office said Tuesday that Fred Krusemark of Dallas died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck after Saturday's crash. He says Krusemark died Monday.

Krusemark was taking part in a ride-along program offered by a company called Texas Driving Experience. The owner of the company didn't immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking comment and both the Krusemark family and a spokesman for the speedway declined comment Tuesday.
