Scott Kalitta dies..


Seems he just couldn't stay away..and today drag racing finally got the best of 46 year old Scott Kalitta. He won two consecutive Top Fuel Champs, but he really loved those damn funny cars.

He retired twice but after sitting out a season or two came running back to the sport.

Hitting the wall at the end of the track in flames, doing 300mph..what a way to go out. Damn..

Kalitta is survived by his father, legendary NHRA racer and team owner Connie Kalitta whom I saw race; wife, Kathy; and sons Corey, 14, and Colin, 8.
