One Dead After Accident at NASCAR Race

A NASCAR contractor has died after being electrocuted while setting up for the Chicago Street Race.

The Cook County Medical Examiner identified the man who died Friday as 53-year-old Duane Tabinski, the founder of an events company hired to install audio equipment for the race, local station WLS-TV reported.

NASCAR said in a statement that a worker had “suffered a fatal medical emergency” on Friday.

“We are coordinating with local authorities on this tragic incident,” race organizers said. “We share our condolences to the family and their loved ones.”

Chicago police said first responders took Tabinski from the race course to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on Friday morning, according to WLS-TV.

The Chicago Street Race is the first street race in NASCAR Cup Series history and will zip past the city’s downtown landmarks on Sunday evening.

NASCAR put out a tweet saying that the race was still scheduled to go as planned, despite the poor weather afflicting the track.

“NASCAR intends to run the NASCAR Cup Series Grant Park 220 today as scheduled at 5 PM ET on NBC, Peacock, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio,” NASCAR tweeted.

    Leave it to Chicago to pull a stupid stunt like this.

  • Lex says:

    Two people were shot and killed on the day NASCAR ran it’s very first race in Chicago. The deaths had nothing to do with the race, just like the contractor that died wiring a sound system had nothing to do with the actual race itself. That was not a NASCAR death.
