[August 18, 2008]  BELDING, Mich. (AP) -- A 72-year-old racer has died in an accident at the Grattan Raceway in northern Kent County.

CivicWOOD-TV said about 2,000 spectators watched Saturday when Jack Drews lost control in a turn at 110 mph and crashed into an embankment.

Drews, from western Illinois, was driving his 1961 Triumph when he drove straight off the track and crashed. His son was racing right behind him.
