DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (September 10, 2012) - AMA Pro Racing is deeply saddened by the passing of Dave Brintlinger and his son Tyler Brintlinger. Dave and his twin brother Darrell have been AMA Pro Flat Track officials for the better part of two decades and 15-year-old Tyler had been a junior member of the official crew for nearly his entire life.
The three were involved in a vehicle accident near Danville, IL following the Knoxville Half-Mile. Darrell is currently recovering in a local hospital.
"There are no words to express the sadness in our hearts," said Dan Johnsen, Director of AMA Pro Flat Track. "Dave and Tyler were always ready to help and came to the track with a smile on their faces every event. Their contribution made a major impact on this sport. They will be dearly missed."
