NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: We have this just in to CNN, there has been another death on the NASCAR circuit. This happened in New Hampshire today. NASCAR driver Kenny Irwin was killed in what is described as a horrific crash during practice for a Winston Cup race.
He was killed just yards of where from where Adam Petty was killed two months ago at New Hampshire International Speedway. Irwin was reportedly entering the third run -- the third turn, excuse me, when his car went hard into the wall and flipped onto its roof. The accident happened during practice before qualifying, leading to Sunday's race, the "New England 300."
Again, Kenny Irwin killed in a practice run today.
