The drag racing community are saddened to announce the sudden passing of their own Blake Copson.
An official Facebook post shared by paul major racing community on Sunday says:
“The Drag Racing community is saddened to share the loss of Blake Copson, he was of the brightest star in the racing community”
Blake Copson took part in last months Shakedown Nationals XVIII at Virginia Motorsports Park with a commanding lead in the Atomizer Racing Injectors Outlaw 10.5 National Championship Series after winning four consecutive races. His twin-turbocharged “Root Beer Rocket” ’17 Corvette had been on a string all season, and he was simply hoping to keep it going at one of the class’ biggest races of the year.
Reacting to Blake’s death the Virginia Motorsports Park via their official Facebook said the young star was one of the brightest stars in radical racing.
Penning down their tribute they wrote – The VMP family extends our prayers to the Copson family who lost their son, Blake, last night. Blake was 26 years old and one of the brightest stars in radial racing – driving his family’s Corvette (which he won our 2020 Shakedown event with) and Manny Buginga’s record-setting X275 Mustang.
Our condolences go out to Joe, the entire Copson family, Manny, Josh and the entire racing community who lost such a bright young star.
“Every time you’re winning like that, you’re kind of like ‘Can we go one more? Can we keep this going?’” Copson, 26, said. “I was trying to stay realistic, but also I had high hopes, of course. We knew we had a good car, but we also knew that everyone else was going to be stepping up. We just knew it was going to be an eventful weekend.”
