Kierstin Eaddy Killed In Event At Texas Motor Speedway
Kierstin Eaddy entered the Texas Motor Speedway pits at speed higher than normal after leaving the go kart track. Kierstin Eaddy then lost control and drove into a wire. That wire pulled her helmet off as the kart came to a stop in the speedway grass.
It all went wrong after she crossed the finish line. Spectators told police it looked like the throttle stuck on the machine and she had no way of slowing down. The go-kart solo race was over and Kierstin Eaddy lost control of her kart entering pit lane.
Speaking from years of go kart experience. It’s also very possible she just ran out of brakes. Go kart fluid is known to boil. If the brake fluid boiled then the brake pedal would go to the floor, failing completely. It could have also been something as simple as the brake bleeder screw popping loose. A long list of mechanical issues could have caused it at no fault to Kierstin Eaddy and racing team.
