Tiny’s Fatal Crash at Talladega

Tiny’s #26 car appears at the end on the back of a wrecker. Notice that the driver’s side door is caved in. In the action of the video you can see the #26 car hit and spinning, then hit again in the driver’s door. As a large nearly 300 pound man with injuries, it was difficult to immediately remove Tiny. He was taken from the car unconscious to the infield care center where he succumbed to internal bleeding injuries. It is speculated that the second blow on the driver’s door and the rollbar cage being pushed in was the fatal blow.
