Possible further NASCAR fatalities[edit]

Quinton S. "Brick" Eichholtz ([1]) might have been killed in a NASCAR-sanctioned Midget race ([2]).

Bob Cameron ([3], [4]), who died in 1960, and Gene Blair ([5], [6]) may have been fatally injured in NASCAR-sanctioned Super Modified and Midget events respectively. According to Cameron's son, who created an entry for his father on the fatality list ([7]) which has since been removed ([8]), the latter "raced the whole NASCAR circut from 1948-1960" ([9]) and Blair "was killed in a NASCAR race ..." ([10]).

The three drivers' possible entries are shown below:
