39 Year old Darren Bryant of Montgomery died when the S10 pickup truck he was racing was hit from behind at the Selma Motorsports Park on May 14th. The District Attorneys office continues to investigate, but believes it to be an accident.
"Since 2002, when NASCAR made head-and-neck restraints mandatory, at least 141 people have died on short tracks, and dozens of others have sustained major injuries, making this the most dangerous corner of American motorsports. Those figures — based on police reports and news media accounts — surpass previous estimates and highlight the consequences of lax rules and scant safety protections."

There are other lists of tracks in Alabama that differ from the one linked at the top of this posting. None that I could find list the Selma track.
