Racer Collapses In Pits At Scotland County Speedway

What started as a festive event at Pepsi-Cola Scotland County Speedway concluded with the solemn news that a 24-year-old Canton man would never race again. Bleu Taylor, a first-year driver at the local track, passed away at 2:30 p.m. April 8th at the Scotland County Memorial Hospital in Memphis.

Taylor had been participating in season-opening practice day at the speedway when he began experiencing medical issues.

According to witnesses, he had been working on his race car in the pit area when he reported not feeling well.

ďIt was my understanding that he had taken his car out for the practice run, but when he returned to the pits he informed his pit crew members that he felt ill,Ē said speedway public relations director Ed Sheckler.

Scotland County Coroner Ginny Monroe indicated that Taylor collapsed in the pit area where first responders initiated CPR. Taylor was transported by Scotland County Ambulance Service to the Memphis hospital where he later died.

Monroe indicated that an autopsy was performed at SCMH and determined that Taylor died due to a cardiac event.

Taylor is survived by a son, Jace, and his wife Sarah, who is expecting the coupleís second child.

ďOur thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the Taylor family,Ē stated track promoter Todd Staley.
