*NOTE: This was originally posted on RacingAccidents2's channel, but the OP has given me permission to post this on my channel.* Live Coverage of Mike Gagliardo's fatal crash during the 2001 Kenwood Communications/Auto Parts Plus 125 Trans-Am race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (previously known as Mosport Park and Mosport International Raceway) in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. It was the first fatal crash in the series since Dan Croft was killed in the 1988 season opener at Long Beach. I will be posting that full race as well as the crash sometime in the near future.

Worst Figure 8 Crash @ Slinger Super Speedway Ever!!!!! 9/11/2011
This is a video of the worst figure 8 Crash Ever @ Slinger Super Speedway. Ryan Lovald just bought Shane the Shark Beckers car and this was the first race racing that car. Ryan Lovald hit Rick Bruskiewicz right behind the Right Front Tire and Ryan Rolls. BOTH DRIVERS WALKED AWAY. You can here a scream right as the hit happens. That was Nicki, Ryans Fiance. You can see a black smoking dot to the right of Ryans car as well that is his motor, the motor came out of the car. Ryan was wearing his INTERSECTION CONNECTION shirt he just made up as well. That was a connection. Ryans knee was hurting and Rick had a small cut. What happened with me in the race was going into turn 3, Bill Shavlik ran into me and knocked my car into neutral which you will here on the in car camera video, I then tried to move up the track to get out of the way and Scott Goetzke was going around me which I didnt see, We joked before the race about hitting eachother and me getting even from the beginning of the year, I never knew he was there. He then slammed me a few times before spinning out and hitting the rollover ramp. I would have done the same thing to him if the tables were turned there so I understood why he hit me back. I then pulled up next to him at the start finish line. We talked and I explained what happened in my car. Scott understood and we shook hands. No big deal there. Its funny now cause everyone thought myself and Scott were fighting but we were really just talking about what actually happened and getting on the same page. I want to thank everyone that was a fan of the cop car. I will most likely not be driving it next year and it is sold. I know pretty much everyone just likes the car and doesnt even know who I am so you will be happy to know it will be coming back as the cop car next year, just with a different driver. It was a blast and I might do this again in the future but for now I'm done. I want to thank my sponsors that have been with me from the beginning of me racing. Guerndt's Bar in St. Lawrence, Keiths Marina, Kettle Moraine Properties (Bob Hart) P.W. Walsh, Race and Street Graphics and Daves Lanes of Hartford. Figure 8's are a blast and it is a testament to the safety equipment in race cars that with a wreck like what happened in this video, they can walk away. Thank You again.... Brandon Wolf.
Maier Racing Mustang: More grip than a GT3? - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Mike Maier If you've ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960's Ford Mustang, then you know that these little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you'll soon realize that what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious improvement . Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue 1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving things alone is generally not an option. Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that though, it's now one of the baddest street 'Stangs on the planet. Most people will tell you that "Bigger is always better"... one drive in the Maier Racing '66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement entirely.
Camaro and Mustang "Racing" Accident
This is a repost of a Camaro and a Mustang "racing" in traffic to remind everyone of the dangers of street racing. 3 vehicles were totaled in the accident, no injuries were mentioned. This accident could have been much worse than it was.
