Last Wednesday night, former United States Auto Club (USAC) racing champion and NASCAR driver, Bobby East, was stabbed to death during an altercation at a gas station in Orange County, California.
The 35-year-old Milsap was reportedly shot and killed as the authorities were attempting to arrest him in his apartment during a raid. The shooting is currently under investigation.
Prior to the search warrant/raid, Milsap was known as a drifter out on a parole warrant, and was deemed armed and dangerous.
In his racing career, East briefly competed in NASCAR in the late 2000s, and had captured back-to-back USAC Silver Crown championships in 2012 and 2013.
East was just 37 years old.
