Open-wheel driver Bryan Clauson has died, USAC officials announced Monday morning.
The Indiana native had a horrifying crash Saturday night in the Belleville (Kan.) Midget Nationals USAC midget race. Clauson was airlifted to a hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska, following the incident.
Clauson was considered the nation's top short-track dirt-car driver. He has won four USAC national championships and was participating in his 116th race of the season on Saturday night.
His schedule this year was on pace for 200 starts, and that included a 23rd-place finish in the Indianapolis 500.
