Two Bodies Found At Talladega Superspeedway Campground Fond During Race Weekend


Two Florida men were found dead in a trailer Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup GEICO 500.

According to multiple local reports, the bodies of 19-year-old Joshua Douin of Crawfordville, Florida, and 48-year-old James Cook of Tallahassee, Florida, were found in the campground section of the track.

Talladega County Sheriff’s Office officials have not released the cause of death for either man, but have said that foul play is not suspected. The bodies of the two dead men are scheduled to undergo autopsies to determine the cause of death.

This is not the first time in recent years a death has surfaced at that track, in fact three prior incidents have been investigated:

  • On May 4, 2013, 28-year-old Nicholas Bower, of Villa Rica, Georgia, disappeared from a track campground and was found 10 days later in a creek 1.5 miles from the track. His death was ruled an accidental drowning.
  • In October 2013, 46-year-old Craig Franklin Morgan, of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, died and his wife, Jami Allison Morgan, was injured from a carbon monoxide leak in their motorhome, parked at the track.
  • On October 18, 2014, reportedly after an argument, Theresa Benn Dulaney was allegedly dropped off by her husband at the racetrack early on race day morning and disappeared. Her body was found just over a month later in a nearby creek.
