Andy Kirby was killed Thursday night in a motorcyle accident in his hometown of White House, Tennessee. The driver of the Robinson Racing No. 77 Ford lost control of his 1985 Harley-Davison Motorcycle on Union Road while taking a curve.

According to Beth Tucker-Womack, spokesperson for the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Kirby "slid 174 feet on the pavement before he and the motorcycle slid off the road. He then slid another 47 feet before striking a tree."

"At that time, he was ejected from the bike," said Tucker-Womack. "There was no sign of drugs or alcohol involved."

Kirby drove 12 races this year for the Robinson Racing team. His best finish was a sixth at Talladega. In 1990 he was the Winston Racing Series Rookie of the Year and in 1997 series champion.

Kirby was 40. His wife Dori and three sons survive him.
