|Death: ||Jul. 5, 1915|
Billy Carlson was killed during the running of a 250 mile race at the Pacific Coast Speedway (often referred to as Tocoma Speedway).
Near the end of the race, a blown tire caused the car to crash off the high banked board track. The riding mechanic, Paul Franzen, was killed instantly and Billy Carlson died later in the day at a local hospital.
Billy's marker was placed by the "Racers at Rest" Project in conjunction with the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum Foundation.
