One of the top racers on the MWR SnoCross Circuit was killed last night (2/5/09) in an auto accident
near Moscow, ID. Sam McLam was traveling down a gravel road in the rain, when him and his friend lost control and Sam was killed. His friend survived and is doing OK. Sam was graduating high school and was planning on attending college next Fall. This was to be his last year on the circuit.
Sam was one of the stars of the MWR SnoCross Circuit. He will forever be remembered for his hard fought competition with Colby Crapo, his fellow racer and good friend. Just last weekend they came in #1 and #2 in Pro Open and Pro Super Stock at Alpine. This time Colby took the win but it has been many times Sam was in the lead. At the Seeley Lake SnoCross two weeks ago, Sam was in the lead when he fell from his sled and Colby was right behind him. So close in fact, that Colby’s ski hit Sam. Colby immediately stopped his sled and ran back to make sure Sam was OK.
Sam will be greatly missed and our heart felt condolences go out to his family.
