The Spokane County medical examiner performed an autopsy this morning on Arndt and ruled that he died accidentally from multiple fractures and trauma.

Arndt was reportedly talking with the track's general manager when an Infiniti sports car spun out of control, striking him near a curve at the track's 2 1/2-mile road course. Read the rest at Spokesman.com

Man killed after being hit by car at Spokane Raceway Park

A 68-year-old Post Falls, Idaho man died about 1:45 p.m. Friday afternoon when he was struck by an out-of-control car running practice laps at Spokane County Raceway Park north of Airway Heights.

The victim's name is being withheld pending release by the Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office.

According to Jay Livingston, General Manager for Austin Motor Sports Management, he and the victim were off-track discussing where striping should be placed on the newly-repaved raceway.

About 30 cars and drivers were making individual practice runs Friday afternoon.

As the two men talked, a 2003 Infinity G30 driven by a 46-year-old retired military pilot came around a nearby curve. The driver lost control of the car and began spinning off the track.

Livingston saw the Infinity coming at the two men and tried unsuccessfully to pull the victim out of the way. The car struck the paint contractor and knocked him into a nearby tree. The victim died almost immediately. >>More
