The York County coroner’s office says 63-year-old Kramer Williamson was pronounced dead at York Hospital at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday. He had suffered serious injuries during a crash that happened Saturday night during the United Racing Company 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge in Abbottstown.

United Racing Company co-owner John Zimmerman says they’re mourning the loss of a popular and accomplished driver.

Officials say Williamson was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2008 and had been racing for more than 40 years. He shared the 1971 rookie of the year title at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg.

The last driver fatality at Lincoln was in 1975.
