East has been a longtime veteran of the stock car racing scene in the course of his occupation, profitable 56 USAC races in the course of his occupation, and very last raced at USAC through a Silver Crown occasion in 2014.
He also put in time in the NASCAR Tenting Globe Truck Series, racing 31 moments on the circuit as properly as 11 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series between 2005 and 2008.
Dropping 1 of the greats in any sport is awful, but doing so in a senseless act of violence in this style tends to make items even extra saddening.
