According to TMZ, the crash occurred outside Las Vegas early Sunday morning. Fellows was racing another driver in the eighth of ninth races planned for that night. Fellows somehow lost control of his car, which rolled and caught fire. Onlookers were unable to get him out of the car in time.

Fellows leaves behind a wife and two children. A GoFundMe page has been created to help them with "the next steps of grief and living life after losing the heart and soul of their beautiful family."
