ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (July 29, 2002) - Robert Kasik, 56, of Roscoe, Ill., was pronounced dead Sunday morning at 11:13 a.m. (CDT) at Valley View Hospital (Plymouth, Wis.) by Sheboygan County Coroner Dave Leffin. Kasik was involved in a single-car incident Sunday at Road America during a Sports Car Club of America-sanctioned Club Racing National event. The cause of death is pending outcome of the autopsy.

Witnesses reported Kasik failed to slow his GT-1 class Chevrolet Camaro for turn 12, also known as Canada Corner, and left the circuit at a high rate of speed.

Kasik was a veteran of 27 years of competition and won the 1996-1998 Showcase National series. He was a frequent qualifier for the annual SCCA Runoffs® National Championship event, recording a best finish of fifth in 1998.

"We are deeply saddened to have lost Bob Kasik, a member of our SCCA family," said Steve Johnson, SCCA President and CEO. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends."

A food scientist, Kasik is survived by wife Sheila and children Amy, Elizabeth and Victoria.
