Race-goer commits suicide in infield of NRA sponsored NASCAR race after argument
A spectator committed suicide at an NRA sponsored NASCAR race in Texas last night.
Kirk Franklin, 42, of Saginaw, died of a 'self-inflicted injury' following a heated argument in the infield of Texas Motor Speedway, police said.
He was pronounced dead at 10:48 p.m.
Police blocked off the area around the incident, and investigators could be seen looking into a truck.
Franklin died towards the end of the NRA 500, which kicked off at the Fort Worth speedway at 7:30 p.m. Kyle Busch led the final 19 laps to win the race event.
