Raceway Owner To Stop Mudsling Races For Awhile After Deadly Accident

Posted August 22, 2003

— A raceway owner in Franklin County said he will not hold mudsling races for awhile after a deadly accident at an event last weekend.

Candace Brown died when a jeep plowed into a crowd of spectators at Five County Raceway.

Eighteen others were hurt, including Brown's 2-year-old daughter.

A mechanic, who inspected the jeep Thursday, said it appears the throttle stuck and the driver was unable to stop.
