Motorcycle Racer Killed In Crash

LIMESTONE, Maine – Bill Warner, a 44-year-old speed motorcycle racer, was killed in a crash Sunday in northern Maine while trying to break 300 mph at a former air base.

Bill Warner, of Wimauma, Fla., was clocked at 285 mph before he lost control of his bike, but it is unclear how fast he was going at the time of the crash according to the event race director Tim Kelly.

He was awake when transported to a local hospital, but later died of his injuries.

The Maine Event is an annual timed speed event that utilizes the 14,200-foot-long runway at the former Strategic Air Command base that closed in 1994.
