Sprint car driver Bryan Clauson, who died Sunday night following injuries incurred during a sprint race, helped better the lives of five people because he was an organ donor, his family announced Wednesday. Clauson crashed Saturday night during a U.S. Auto Club (USAC) midget car race at the Belleville High Banks, a half-mile dirt track in Belleville, Kansas, and was airlifted to a hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska, where he was pronounced dead late Sunday. Known for his skill in many forms of motorsports, Clauson made 26 career starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The family's full statement is below. Additionally, NASCAR announced Wednesday it would honor Clauson with a decal on the NASCAR XFINITY Series cars this weekend at Mid-Ohio. To honor the life of Bryan Clauson, NASCAR will make this decal available for XFINITY Series teams in Mid-Ohio. pic.twitter.com/Iu29gSOUvu — NASCAR (@NASCAR) August 10, 2016 "We would all like to thank you for all of your prayers and concerns over the last few days. It provided strength and comfort during a very difficult time for us. Nothing prepares you for these moments. We have all watched from afar as other families have had to face their own tragedies or been there to support our family and friends as they have spent their own time in the hospital. However, nothing makes you ready to say goodbye. You take each moment as it comes and we could not have made it to this point with out all of you. One of the gifts that Bryan gave us while we sat next to him praying for some good news, was the moment we found out that he was an organ donor. It shouldn’t have surprised us. All of us have felt Bryan ’s generosity throughout his life. The gift of life is the most amazing gesture and Bryan will live on not only through us and all the people he touched along the way, but from the lucky individuals that will benefit from Bryan making a decision to be a donor. It was not lost on our family as we sat huddled around him, holding his hands, comforting him and each other, saying our last goodbye that five families were also sitting in a hospital room somewhere, comforting their loved one and each other while praying for a miracle that Bryan ultimately delivered for them. We are so proud of our Bryan for making this decision. The Nebraska Organ Recovery team made the entire process very comforting. Their compassion, love, and respect when treating Bryan did not go unnoticed. We want to acknowledge every member of the Nebraska Organ Recovery team. Thank you for loving our Bryan . If you are a donor, thank you. If you are not, please consider for a moment becoming one. We have seen first hand how amazing it feels on both sides of the coin. It is the greatest gift that one person can give another. We promise. Again, thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and friendship. We look forward to seeing you at the races. Lauren, Tim, Di, Taylor"
XFINITY Series drivers share thoughts, memories of Bryan Clauson
LEXINGTON, Ohio -- The NASCAR world continues to mourn the loss of Bryan Clauson, a sprint car driver who died Sunday at the age of 27. Clauson crashed Saturday night during a U.S. Auto Club (USAC) midget car race at the Belleville High Banks, a half-mile dirt track in Belleville, Kansas, and was airlifted to a hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska, where he was pronounced dead late Sunday. Clauson was an accomplished sprint-car driver, who also made 26 starts in what is now the NASCAR XFINITY Series, will be remembered by teams this weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course with a special decal . The Indiana native had several friends and acquaintances in the NASCAR garage including Justin Marks , who is a part-time driver of the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet in the XFINITY Series. "It's incredibly sad," Marks told NASCAR.com. "I met Bryan in 2007 when he was at Chip Ganassi Racing in Nationwide (now XFINITY .) He came through ARCA when I was in ARCA in '06 and '07, so I've known him for a long time. And really just in the last two years, got to know him better just because I got involved in the sport, World of Outlaws and he was around that." Marks co-owns a sprint-car organization, Larson Marks Racing, with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver and Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Kyle Larson . After Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series Mid-Ohio Challenge (3:30 p.m. ET, USA, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course , Marks is heading out to the Knoxville Nationals in Iowa. Clauson would have competed in the sprint-car event this weekend. " Bryan's a racer, Lauren (his fiancée) is a racer and Tim's (his father) a racer," Marks said. "They're just a racing family. It's all they've ever known." Sam Hornish Jr . (driver of the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet at Mid-Ohio) said the loss is one you never want to hear about. "Racing is such a tight knit community of people," Hornish said. "There's always people that are there even though we are competing against each other, they want to see good things happen to other people if they can. So whenever there is a loss like that, you take it hard regardless of how well you were friends, not friends. Everybody's definitely been thinking about it for quite a bit this week." Ty Dillon (driver of the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet), who has dabbled in some racing outside of NASCAR, called Clauson "a highly admired person" who is "going to be missed." "Everybody's got heavy hearts for the Clauson family," Dillon said. "… It's just sad. You feel for his family and you pray for them to be able to get through." Clauson had set a preseason goal of competing in 200 open-wheel races this year. That schedule included a start in the 100th Indianapolis 500, where he placed 23rd in his third effort at the famed Brickyard. According to Indianapolis Motor Speedway , Clauson had accumulated 27 wins in 116 races this season. " Bryan Clauson is the only guy in history to lead the Indy 500 (led three laps in the 2016 race) and win a 4/10 sprint car feature in the same day," Marks said. "That's a racer. They don't make them like that very much anymore."
