WALL, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Friends and family were mourning the death Sunday of a 21-year-old woman killed in a crash at Wall Stadium Speedway.

Amanda Gambacorto, of Middletown, was killed Saturday when the midget car she was driving hit a wall while she was participating in a beginners race clinic, WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported.
