I did a search for it and one corner worker died from severe concussion. The other lived and the riders lived.

I did a search too...

The (most) injured track worker was Rob Dages. Yes, he lived. The relevant parts of the story are (lifted from his account and news):

Rob was seriously injured on Saturday, July 7, 2001, when he was struck by a rider in Turn 2 at (New Hampshire International Speedway) Loudon, while clearing the track of a previous incident. Rob's actual injuries are: fractured pelvis and tailbone, bruised ribs (one broken), an impressively ugly gash in the left forearm, an equally scary gash in the head, and lots of bumps and bruises. The other track worker Rick Martin suffered only bruises and scrapes. The rider who hit the two, Rick Currier suffered similar non-fatal injuries.

Rob is fine today, no lasting injuries, he races when he has time. Rick Currier (the racer who hit the workers) did suffer some lasting long-lasting effects from his closed head injury. He was not breathing after the crash and was resucitated on-scene. Rick Martin had a minor leg injury.

Racing was resumed about two hours later.


looks like no deaths. nobody was split in half. if you want too see people exploding, go watch the Arab drift movies

I can't imagine what they did was recommended practice.
