On November 9th Cale was back at Summit Point competing in NASA’s TTC Time Trial division. Cale was severely injured during the second time trial session. He suffered many internal injuries but the most severe was a serious brain injury similar to what happened to Dale Earnhardt. Cale was medivacced to a nearby hospital where he passed away on November 11th after his organ donor transplant surgeries were complete. His organs will go toward helping to improve the lives of others. We were told that a newborn baby will be receiving a portion of his liver and many more people through bone grafts.
That fateful weekend Cale Kastanek clocked the fastest lap of 124.6, winning Sunday’s TTC division and clinching the 2008 Mid-Atlantic TTC Championship. Congratulations Cale, you’ve earned more than just a NASA Championship, you’ve touched countless lives of those around you. Godspeed.
