John Barr, a 35-year-old policeman from San Diego, died Saturday afternoon after crashing during a track ride day at California Speedway in Fontana, California.

Barr was involved in a single-bike accident between turns 8 and 9 on the short infield course at California Speedway, which is a low-speed section of track, and didn’t hit anything but apparently highsided and landed on his chest. Barr was riding in a session for Group 2, a mid-skill-level riding group for experienced riders.

“Fastrack offers its condolences to the family, and to his friends,” said Fastrack’s Larry Pointer, who was still visibly shaken Saturday evening. “This is the first fatality at a FastrackRiders event, since the beginning of Fastrack, over 10 years. I’m not sure what else to say, we’re still a little shell-shocked.”

Roadracingworld.com offers its condolences to John Barr’s family and friends, and wishes him Godspeed.
