Sean's Race Car

The Nashville’s Fairgrounds Speedway Bandolero division race car of Sean LePore, who was fatally shot in Murfreesboro last week.

The fatal shooting of two young brothers who raced at Nashville’s Fairgrounds Speedway has shaken the close-knit racing fraternity, and few were more touched than veteran Wilson County racer Bennie Hamlett, whose two sons compete at the track.

“It’s tragic,” Hamlett said Saturday. “To lose two young lives like that … I can’t imagine it. It’s hard to put it into words. It’s just awful.”
