A North Carolina man is dead as the result of a single-vehicle auto racing accident Saturday morning at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale.

The crash happened as a man, identified in social media posts as 52-year-old Jeff Hagaman, reached speeds in excess of 200 miles-per-hour while driving his Nissan GT-R. His vehicle flipped multiple times before coming to a stop.

The facility was holding what was called its WannaGoFast New Orleans 1/2 Mile Shootout this past weekend.
