Crane and Drasson. Notice that Drasson is the only thing in the photo to have color.

. Then suddenly, Justin Saturn lost control and hit Crane. Crane then hit the wall and got hit head-on by Drasson Draftski and was sent back into the wall before flipping twice and spinning. Crane then comes to a stop extremely close to the finish line before being hit by another racer and it left oil all over the racetrack. A pitty saw one of his wheels in the pit lane along with oil from Crane and yells "It's over, don't try to come and give him help. He is already dead."  Crane was posthumously enacted into the Hall of Fame for his amazing performance and his well-known aggressive-but not too aggressive to cause a wreck-aggressive.
