“It is with a very sad, heavy, broken heart that I post this,” a statement said on the Mickey Walker Racing Facebook page. “Our racer has gone to be with the Lord early this morning. I can speak on behalf of the family when we say thank you for all the calls, texts, messages, food, and visits. We just ask that you lift us up in prayer over anything. We are mourning deeply, and honestly, still in shock.

“We know our Mickey has won the best, biggest race that anyone could. When you think of number 2, please just say a prayer for us. He loved every single one of his fans. He loved his team. He loved his dad. Where you saw Kenneth, you saw Mickey. Especially at the track. Thank you again, and once again, please just shoot a prayer up for us when he crosses your mind.”
