WALTER PAYTON

TRANS AM MUSTANG BODYWORK

PRACTICE CRASH - 1993 ROAD AMERICA TRANS AM

After he retired from football, Chicago Bears legend Walter Payton took up motor racing. The the NFL's greatest running back became a partner in Dale Coyne's CART Indy Car team and drove in various SCCA pro and amateur events.

While practicing for the 1993 Road America Trans Am at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, Payton survived a horrific accident at one of the fastest sections of that 4 mile circuit. A car just in front of Walter's Mustang suffered a mechanical failure and slowed dramatically. Unable to maneuver, Payton rammed the back of the disabled car and was launched into the air, flipping over the guard rail and ending up - in flames - in a spectator area. Thankfully, it was a practice day, the area was unoccupied and no one was injured. Walter suffered minor burns but was essentially OK. It was to be, however, his last professional racing appearance.

The bodywork pictured here was retrieved from the accident scene. It carries Walter's familiar Number 34 and NFL markings. It's a unique piece of memorabilia for a racing or football fan.
