“Given that, Top Fuel won’t make any further comment at this time except to say that our thoughts are with the team members involved and that they’re all in good hands. Please don’t use this post to speculate about what happened. Rather, let’s send love and care to JRR. Just like the Dragway crowd lighting their phones in this picture.”
