It is with regret that I must tell you that Keli Lynn Bruner age 37 and daughter of Infineon racers Mitch and Sharon Whorton lost her life early on Tuesday morning in a single car accident in Napa.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Whorton Family as well as all of their friends. Keli left behind 2 children, ages 6 and 3

Thanks to Dave Hulford for passing this information along and we ask you to include Keli's family in your prayers.

I am at a loss for words....and to think of all of the little incidental things that upset us during each day....and life brings you such tragic news. Sort of brings the whole world to a sudden, and silencing halt.

Mitch and Sharon...Brenda and I are so sorry for your loss. You will be in all of our thoughts and prayers....may life shower you with feelings of love and family, in this, your greatest time of need.

We are all your friends, and I want to offer you our world, and anything in it. May you call upon us if ever a need should arise....as always.

Unfortunately Brenda and I were unable to attend to show our support for the family...I am glad to see so many people were able to take the time to pay their respects, and just be there for the family.

Don't feel too bad Craig, Lynette and I couldn't attend either but we were there in spirit.
I think that both Mitch and Sharon are aware of the out pouring  of everyone's love and support during this bleak period and we continue to keep them in our prayers now that the healing period has begun.

Sharon and Mitch,  we were both saddened to hear of your loss.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.  It must be comforting to know you have so many loving and caring friends from the track.  We will be thinking of you and your grandchildren.  Lonnie and Willie Woo
