Greg Hodnett dies following Pennsylvania crash

Sprint auto veteran and World of Outlaws champion Greg Hodnett was killed Thursday night as a result of a high-speed crash at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pennsylvania.

The 49-year-old Pennsylvanian reportedly lost control and rolled his auto into the Turn One wall of the short dirt track, dying on impact.

The York Daily Record reported that an autopsy will be performed on Saturday to determine the exact cause of death, and that the crash is being investigated.

Hodnett was racing at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pennsylvania. He was the 1993 World of Outlaws top rookie and won 20 World of Outlaws races in his career.

The 49-year-old Hodnett was a five-time champion at Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania.

An occasional competitor of Hodnett's, NASCAR driver Kyle Larson, took to Twitter to offer his condolences.

A statement on Hodnett's website said: "Please keep [wife] Sherry, the entire Hodnett family, and the Heffner racing team in your thoughts and prayers. A true professional who we looked forward to seeing every August".

RacinBoys extends its deep sympathy to Greg Hodnett's family and friends at this hard time.
