A Florida motorcycle racer trying to top 300 mph died after losing control and crashing at an annual speed trial event Maine. The Loring Timing Association says 44-year-old Bill Warner of Florida crashed Sunday during The Maine Event, a race being held on a runway at the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone. This man was amazing. He was going 285 mph before he lost control. After the crash, Warner was conscious and talking but he later passed away at a hospital. This was not new  to Mr Warner. He hit 311 mph at Loring in 2011, but it was on 1.5 miles of pavement. This time he was trying for the 300 mph mark on just a mile of pavement.
