No Nascar Burials For Die-Hard Race Fans

Die-hard race fans won’t be buried at Daytona International Speedway or Homestead Miami Speedway any time soon, a Senate panel said Tuesday.

The Senate Regulated Industries Committee, by a 7-4 vote, rejected a proposal to allow remains to be interred at a motorsport complex.

You can still be buried at a public university though.

The Legislature approved a bill two years ago that allows people to be buried on the grounds of a public university. Former Senate President Jim King, who passed away shortly after the bill was signed into law, was the first person interred on a college campus. He was buried on the Florida State University campus in 2009.
