A race car driver paid the ultimate price while competing in the “Ultimate Challenge” race. Sprint car driver Keith Hutton died last night from injuries sustained at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa. Hutton was competing in his qualifying “c” main with the S-C-R-A sanctioned non-winged world championship series, when his car struck the outside retaining wall, launching him into a series of flips down the front stretch of the dirt track. Hutton was rushed to Mahaska Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Hutton, a native to Australia, lived in Knoxville with his wife Jenny, and made his living as a mechanic for Knoxville driver Don Droud, Junior.
