    And the news are stating that 4 are dead from the out of control drag car. But last count here ( I am 9 miles from where it happened) is 10 dead. as more died during the night..
    Sad day here in Selmer Tn again.
    The Cars for kids was started here in Selmer. And has always been a great weekend.

    Pete, we read that online not long after it happened. There is a lot of sorrow in Selmer today for sure. The families are in our prayers.
