It is being reported that Josh Burton, a Sprint car driver, has died after a terrifying crash last night at Bloomington Speedway in Monroe County, IN.
Josh Burton was racing in the Spring Car B-Main at Bloomington Speedway last night, 5/24/13, when his car broke the right front wheel completely off as the car headed for turn 1. Burton’s car dug into the dirt causing it to flip a number of times before it was stopped. Josh Burton was eventually cut out of the car and immediately transported to a local hospital.
It was reported by Nicole Meyer, a Monroe County Coroner, that Josh Burton has passed away.
Our thoughts and prayers with the entire Burton family.
Although Josh Burton shares the same last name as NASCAR drivers Jeff Burton, Ward Burton and Jeb Burton it is unknown at the moment if he was related to them.
