Live footage of Tony Roper's fatal crash during the 2000 O'Reilly 400k.
Shortly after the start of the race, Roper was involved in a three-car
crash. His truck collided with Steve Grissom's Dodge #43 and slammed into a
concrete wall on the front stretch. Tony Roper sustained a severe neck
injury that stopped the blood flow to his brain, and left him without any
brain function. He was airlifted to the Dallas' Parkland Memorial Hospital
and placed under intensive care. Several hours later the
thirty-five-year-old driver succumbed to his injuries, at 10h55 on
Saturday, 14 October 2000.
