REST IN PEACE...JASON JOHNSON! (Brent Smith Photo)

World of Outlaws sprint car driver Jason Johnson died Sunday morning after he was involved in a crash Saturday night in a sprint car race at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.

 Johnson was airlifted to a hospital after his crash. The story had a picture of a torn Pabst Blue Ribbon billboard from Johnson’s wreck. His team’s Facebook page posted that he was alive as of late Saturday night, but things obviously took a turn for the worst later.
Per a video posted to YouTube that corresponds to the picture of the broken billboard, Johnson’s car got pinched between the wall and another car. His car then flipped over and he ended up flipping out of the track between the wall and signage posted outside of the track after hitting that PBR billboard.
