When NASCAR takes their race to Talladega Superspeedway, you know that it is only a matter of time until “the big one.” There was no shortage of major crashes during Sunday’s race, but the craziness started before the green flag was even dropped.
FOX Sports reported that the bodies of two dead Florida men were found hours before the beginning of the race on Sunday. WIAT.com confirmed that the two men were 19-year-old Joshua Douin of Crawfordville, Florida, and 48-year-old James Cook of Tallahassee.
The bodies were found inside a trailer at one of the many campgrounds at Talladega.
Luckily, foul play is not suspected, but autopsies for the two bodies have been ordered.
This is a pretty crazy happening and you have to wonder what exactly went down before the race on Sunday. It will be interesting to follow this story as more information becomes available.
