Vince Neil Gets Ready For A Street Circuit Race Yet It Reminded Fans The Tragic Car Crash He Involved
Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil posted a picture of himself on Instagram taken during his practice for an upcoming street circuit race in Downtown Nashville, however, his post made fans recall the terrible car accident he involved in years ago.
Recently on Instagram, Vince Neil posted a picture of himself while driving the NTT INDYCAR new circuit in Downtown Nashville with a Ferrari 360 Modena. In the caption of his post, Neil implied that he might be a part of the upcoming Music City Grand Prix, a street circuit race, which will be held at the Nashville Street Circuit in the summer of 2021.
Vince’s latest post reminded Mötley Crüe fans of the tragic drunk-driving accident he involved in back in the 1980s. As you might remember, in 1984, the drummer of Hanoi Rocks Nicholas ‘Razzle’ Dingley and his bandmates visited Vince Neil’s house in Los Angeles. Later that night, Vince and his friend Razzle went to a liquor store to restock some beer for the party at his house.
While driving drunk, Neil lost control of his car crashed into an ongoing car. The crash caused serious injuries to the two occupants of the other car and Razzle’s instant death at the collision. As a result of the tragic incident, Vince was charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol and he was sentenced to 30 days in jail, of which he served only 15 days, and five years of probation.
Here is what Vince Neil stated in the caption of his post:
“Today driving the NTT INDYCAR new circuit in Downtown Nashville. Coming this summer!“
Regardless of the past, fans showed their support for Vince regarding his participation in the street circuit race since he has other previous experiences of racing. Back in 1992, Neil actually competed in the CART/Firestone/Dayton Indy Lights Series. He managed to finish 12th at Phoenix and at Portland, and 10th at Milwaukee with No. 69 Personal Investment Group car.
