This isn't the first time the Houston Motorsports Park has seen such tragedy

A Mustang going more than 100 miles an hour smashed into barrels on a northeast Harris County race track, killing the driver overnight.

The accident happened at Houston Motorsports Park on North Lake Houston Parkway around 11pm last night.

Investigators say the driver was participating in a time trial when he lost control. He died at the scene.

This isn't the first time someone has crashed and died at this track. In 2014, a driver practicing for a drag race also crash and died.
