Police continue investigation into fatal racing crash

Police are still looking over Scott Semmelmann’s race car, as well as the track, after his car crashed and flipped during warm-up laps Saturday night at the Beaver Dam Raceway.

Authorities said Semmelmann, who was from Brookfield, died instantly.

His family was in the stands when the crash happened, including his brother, Brian Semmelmann.

Brian Semmelmann spoke with media this weekend and said racing and his family meant everything to his brother.

“He was a heck of a family man, and he has three beautiful children and a great wife. He had no flaws. His only flaw was he didn’t quit,” Brian Semmelmann said.

The memorial fund set up for Semmelmann’s family already reached more than $6,500 with a goal of $10,000.
