We have a sad news to share with you. In an unfortunate accident during a race on Saturday at Calistoga Speedway, driver Tyler Wolf lost his life. It was a 30-lap race and the accident took place during the third lap when the 20-year-old lost control over his car, went off the track and smashed into a wall.
A report on Chico Enterprise-Record said that the paramedics, as soon as reached the spot, found Wolf alive but unconscious. He was declared dead about an hour later. Major head injuries were the cause of his death.
An avid racer, Wolf was named the track champion at the Silver Dollar Speedway last year and he had been a racer since he was 6-year-old, his father Chuck Wolf said.

“We are deeply saddened by this loss to our racing family and want to express our sincere condolences to Tyler’s family and friends.”
